Caswell, Cynthia A. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
This conceptual article begins with a general definition of reflection and the soft skills of PBL: collaboration, agency, and metacognition. Then it presents theoretical frameworks for reflection from second language teacher education (SLTE) (Farrell, 2015; Pennington & Richards, 2016) and illustrates six types of reflection with examples from…

Odell, Michael R. L.; Kennedy, Teresa J.; Stocks, Eric – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
Project/problem-based learning (PBL) can provide an effective model for school reform when implemented with fidelity. In the report, "Rising Above the Gathering Storm," it was recommended that if the U.S. is to remain competitive in the 21st-century economy, there must be a serious effort to "enlarge the pipeline of students who are…

Kelley, Kristi W.; Fowlin, Julaine M.; Tawfik, Andrew A.; Anderson, Max C. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
Practitioners in the field of pharmacy are often confronted with ill-structured problems. Specifically, pharmacists are tasked with making patient-specific recommendations that are both safe and effective, which requires combining knowledge from the biomedical, behavioral, and pharmaceutical sciences. Given the dynamic nature of pharmacy as a…

Chian, Monaliza M.; Bridges, Susan M.; Lo, Edward C. M. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
Assessment validity, reliability, and constructive alignment to planned learning outcomes are less understood in the context of integrated, problem-based curricula. This conceptual paper examines a Triple Jump Assessment (TJA) employed as a formative and summative assessment system in the first year of an undergraduate dental program.…

Müller, Tanja; Henning, Thomas – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2017
In this paper, we provide insight into the PBL project called PoLiMINT (Problem-oriented Learning in MINT). The project is located at the Bremen University of Applied Sciences and aims to introduce and foster PBL in the introductory phase of a physics study program. Concerning our general conditions, we will present our incremental implementation…

Hendry, Adam; Hays, Gavin; Challinor, Kurt; Lynch, Daniel – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2017
The aim of this paper is to provide an overview of the introduction, implementation, evolution, hybridization, and initial research into the constructivist instructional models deployed within a secondary (high) school in Australia. A concomitant aim is to relate some of the consequences of whole school pedagogical change, which have included the…

Tawfik, Andrew A.; Kolodner, Janet L. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2016
Current theories and models of education often argue that instruction is best administered when knowledge is situated within a context. Problem-based learning (PBL) provides an approach to education that has particularly powerful affordances for learning disciplinary content and practices by solving authentic problems within a discipline. However,…

Savin-Baden, Maggi – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2016
There has been much recent discussion about student engagement in higher education, and in the last few years a number of authors have undertaken extensive international research on the topic, which has been summarized in a number of literature reviews. However, to date, there has been relatively little in-depth exploration of student engagement…

Rasi, Päivi M.; Poikela, Sari – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2016
Higher education faces the challenges of bridging education and authentic work. In addition, it needs to respond to the highly multimodal and participatory communication and content creation practices, preferences, and cultures of present and future students. The aim of our article is to discuss how the use of video triggers and video production…

Virtanen, Jaana; Rasi, Päivi – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2016
In this article we present and discuss the process of developing and implementing a PBL-based course entitled Moving Images in Teaching and Learning that was held at the University of Lapland, Finland. In the course of the project, this fairly traditional face-to-face course was redesigned into a blended PBL course by integrating Web 2.0…

McCaughan, Kareen – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2013
Scholars have noted PBL is consistent with John Dewey's educational theories and with constructivist philosophies. This paper explores the similarities between the assumptions within Howard Barrows' principles for the PBL tutor's actions with Dewey's theories that address teacher behaviors and with Carl Rogers's conceptual frameworks that support…

Jonassen, David H.; Hung, Woei – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2008
Problem-based learning (PBL) is an instructional model that assumes the centrality of problems to learning. Research on PBL has focused on student learning, student roles, tutor roles, problem design, and technology use (Hung, Jonassen, & Liu, 2008), but little attention in the PBL literature has been paid to the nature of the problems that…

Savery, John R. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2006
Problem-based learning (PBL) is an instructional approach that has been used successfully for over 30 years and continues to gain acceptance in multiple disciplines. It is an instructional (and curricular) learner-centered approach that empowers learners to conduct research, integrate theory and practice, and apply knowledge and skills to develop…
