In many problem-solving situations students encounter in their careers, they need information from a variety of sources within or outside their organization. Many cases used in class provide all of the information in one document. When all information is provided, no student gets the experience of identifying missing information and potential sources to fill the gaps. Students miss the collaborative nature of information-sharing and input from multiple areas of responsibility that is necessary for complex problem-solving. In this presentation, I describe the development of a simple collaborative case approach that works as a guided role play, and I present two examples. This approach helps the students learn to read with an eye toward what information is not there and the holes that are present in the information they possess. This topic is intended to be useful for classroom teachers and could be developed for both classroom and online exercises.
