Abstract: Disciplinary practices are challenging to teach and assess, yet are integral to persistence and future success. This poster presents findings from an online, interactive case study system that allows learners to take on expert roles--in this case, dietitian--and learn content as they counsel virtual patients. We present results from two design-based research implementations, and preliminary findings from an ongoing third implementation. Analysis reveals that undergraduate and graduate nutrition students learned about professional practices.
