OPTIONAL: When submitting your homework assignment (of finding and sharing a case) learners are encouraged to also either write a paragraph summarising their case, or a video of no more than 1 minute speaking about the case and summarising it. This is to ensure that learners who prefer to speak can do this, and learners who prefer to write can do that instead.
