Cairns, Darran R.; Curtis, Reagan; Sierros, Konstantinos A.; Bolyard, Johnna J. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
There is currently significant interest in 3D fabrication in middle school classrooms. At its best 3D printing can be utilized in authentic design projects that integrate math, science, and technology, which facilitate deep learning by students. In essence, students are able to tinker in a virtual world using 3D design software and then tinker in…

Hartman, Pamela; Renguette, Corinne; Seig, Mary Theresa – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
We designed a professional development (PD) teacher-mentor program that used problem-based learning (PBL) to accomplish two goals. First, teachers explored how PBL could be used effectively in their classrooms to change the way they think about teaching to include literacy development in content areas. Second, PBL was the basis for PD training to…

Rillero, Peter; Koerner, Mari; Jimenez-Silva, Margarita; Merrit, Joi; Farr, Wendy J. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2017
Teachers need to be able to design and implement problem-based learning (PBL) experiences to help students master the content and the processes in new mathematics and science education standards. Due to the changed population of learners within schools, it is also critically important that teachers in the elementary grades have the abilities to…

Hung, Woei – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2016
One essential piece of implementing of PBL is the problem. There have been calls from practitioners in the PBL field for a systematic process for designing effective PBL problems. Yet, the research efforts to explore, develop, and test PBL problem design methods or processes are still sparse. From an instructional designer and researcher's…

Persichetti, Amy L. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2016
This article will illustrate how a problem-based learning (PBL) course (Savery, 2006) can be used in a writing program as a vehicle for both creative and preprofessional learning. English 420: Writing, Publishing, and Editing is offered every fall, and its counterpart, English 423: Writing, Publishing, and Editing is offered each spring. The…

Kirkman, Robert – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2016
I describe the first stages of a process of design research in which I employ problem-based learning in a course in engineering ethics, which fulfills a requirement for students in engineering degree programs. The aim of the course is to foster development of particular cognitive skills contributing to moral imagination, a capacity to notice,…

Salinitri, Francine D.; Wilhelm, Sheila M.; Crabtree, Brian L. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2015
With increasing adoption of the problem-based learning (PBL) model, creative approaches to enhancing facilitator training and optimizing resources to maintain effective learning in small groups is essential. We describe a theoretical framework for the development of a PBL facilitator training program that uses the constructivist approach as the…

Liu, Min; Horton, Lucas; Lee, Jaejin; Kang, Jina; Rosenblum, Jason; O'Hair, Matthew; Lu, Chu-Wei – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2014
This paper describes the design and development process used to create Alien Rescue, a multimedia-enhanced learning environment that supports problem-based learning (PBL) in middle school science. The goal of the project is to further our understandings of technology, pedagogy, and instructional theories as they relate to the application of PBL…

English, Mary C.; Kitsantas, Anastasia – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2013
In order to be successful in problem-or project-based learning (PBL), students must take responsibility for the learning process by setting goals, monitoring, reflecting, and sustaining their motivation from the beginning of the project until the end. However, for many students, these processes do not occur naturally or easily. Therefore, the…

Gyori, Brad – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2013
In the age of the Internet, students are clamoring for immersive and participatory learning experiences, but how can teachers share autonomy without losing control of their classrooms? In an effort to address this important question, this article suggests three mentorship modes that educators can employ in order to effectively engage with today's…

Levitt, Sarah; McKeage, Anne; Rangachari, P. K. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2013
Problem-based learning (PBL) is well suited for courses in the history of medicine, where multiple perspectives exist and information has to be gleaned from different sources. A student, an archivist, and a teacher offer three perspectives about a senior level course where students explored the antecedents and consequences of medical technology.…

Hmelo-Silver, Cindy E. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2012
The theme of this special issue is timely as the world becomes increasingly flat and globally connected (Friedman, 2007). By focusing on an international perspective in problem-based learning (PBL), it puts culture squarely in the center, whether it is a national or disciplinary culture. The articles in this special issue represent Thailand, South…

Jonassen, David – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2011
Although the characteristics of PBL (problem focused, student centered, self-directed, etc.) are well known, the components of a problem-based learning environment (PBLE) and the cognitive scaffolds necessary to support learning to solve different kinds of problems with different learners is less clear. This paper identifies the different…

Andrews, Dee H.; Hull, Thomas D.; Donahue, Jennifer A. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2009
This paper discusses the theoretical and empirical foundations of the use of storytelling in instruction. The definition of "story" is given and four instructional methods are identified related to storytelling: case-based, narrative-based, scenario-based, and problem-based instruction. The article provides descriptions of the four…
