Are you looking for a teaching method that will help your students think critically and creatively, apply their knowledge to real-life disciplinary situations, be self-directed and work in groups? If so, Problem-based Learning (PBL) may be your answer. PBL is an inquiry-based, student-centered pedagogy based on current, evidence-based theories of learning. In this session, you will learn the basics of PBL.
At the conclusion of this session, you should be able to begin to:
- Discuss the pros and cons of using problem-based learning.
- Discuss the basic format/structure of a “PBL class.”
- Discuss the role of the problem in PBL.
- Discuss the elements of a good problem.
- Discuss assessment as related to problem-based learning.
