Shuster, Michèle I.; Curtiss, Jennifer; Wright, Timothy F.; Champion, Camilla; Sharifi, Maryam; Bosland, Judith – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
We are examining the impact of a course-based undergraduate research experience (CURE) at a land-grant, Hispanic-serving institution in the southwestern United States. Students in our CURE completed one or two extended research projects over a single semester. Our CURE enrolled a high proportion of underrepresented minority students (70.3%),…

Svihla, Vanessa; Kubik, Tim; Stevens-Shauger, Tori – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
While performance assessment (PA) is well aligned to project-based learning (PjBL), teachers find it challenging to design and implement PA that is faithful to the authentic context of their projects and viewed externally as rigorous. In contrast to standardizing PA tasks--thereby diminishing authenticity--we formed a research-practice partnership…

Culclasure, Brooke T.; Longest, Kyle C.; Terry, Troy M. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
Project-based learning (PjBL) as a PK-12 instructional model is growing nationwide. PjBL is seen as a mechanism to deliver academic content in a more engaging way for students and in a way that stresses the development of skills critical to success in the 21st-century workforce. Because of its increasing popularity and the disparate breadth of…

Kim, Nam Ju; Belland, Brian R.; Axelrod, Daryl – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
Establishing optimal challenge enhances intrinsic motivation, interest, and the probability of success in the learning activity. In K-12 problem-based learning (PBL), students may struggle to address associated tasks that are beyond their current ability levels. This paper suggested learner-centered scaffolding systems (LSS) to improve K-12…

Liu, Min; Liu, Sa; Pan, Zilong; Zou, Wenting; Li, Chenglu – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
Most of the previous problem-based learning (PBL) studies have been conducted with gifted or regular education students and have shown successes. However, little research on PBL exists for disadvantaged middle school students, especially students who are considered to be at risk of failing academically. In this study, we examined the use of a…

Whitlock, Annie McMahon – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
In this paper, I describe the implementation of a project-based economics unit in a fifth-grade classroom in Michigan, titled One Hen. One Hen is a curricular unit designed to teach students about social entrepreneurship as a way for students to learn economic concepts while developing their own civic efficacy by engaging in a project where they…

Si, Jihyun; Kong, Hyun-Hee; Lee, Sang-Hwa – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
This study aims to explore the effects of argumentation with the concept map method during medical problem-based learning (PBL) on individual clinical reasoning. Individual clinical reasoning ability was assessed through problem-solving performance and arguments that students constructed during individual clinical reasoning processes. Toulmin's…

Korpi, Hilkka; Peltokallio, Liisa; Piirainen, Arja – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
The aim of the study was to investigate how physiotherapy students using a problem-based learning approach develop into experts during higher education, and answers the question: How do physiotherapy students at bachelor's level understand the problem-based learning approach while learning to become professionals? PBL is examined using…

Lee, Huei-Chen; Blanchard, Margaret R. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
This quantitative study examined factors underlying middle and high school teachers' choices about whether to use problem-based learning (PBL). Survey items measured respondents' perceived competence, autonomy, and relatedness, and the value and costs they placed on implementing PBL. Teachers who have taught with PBL (n = 126) had significantly…

Virtue, Emily E.; Hinnant-Crawford, Brandi N. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
Supporters of project-based learning (PBL) argue that outcomes from the model include better performance in academic (Bell, 2010; Thomas, 2000) and non-academic outcomes (Saunders-Steward, Gyles, & Shore, 2010). The New Tech Network (NTN) is a school improvement network that provides training and development for high school faculty who commit…

Mahmood, Dina; Jacobo, Hugo – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
In an effort to adopt more equitable and humanizing grading practices, this teacher inquiry explores how educators attempted to improve students' views of learning and assessments by utilizing rubrics on a sliding scale. Using the sliding scale rubric approach to grading provided an opportunity for students and educators to rethink how learning is…

Ulger, Kani – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
The problem-based learning (PBL) approach was implemented as a treatment for higher education visual arts students over one semester to examine its effect on the creative thinking and critical thinking disposition of these students. PBL had a significant effect on creative thinking, but critical thinking disposition was affected to a lesser…

Valentine, Keri Duncan – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
With an increased push to integrate coding and computational literacy in K-12 learning environments, teacher educators will need to consider ways they might support preservice teachers (PSTs). This paper details a tinkering approach used to engage PSTs in thinking computationally as they worked with geometric concepts they will be expected to…

Chan, Monica M.; Blikstein, Paulo – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
This is a research study of design and engineering classes that use a problem-based learning (PBL) approach in digital fabrication makerspaces in two middle schools. In these studies, teachers employ a PBL approach and provide an ill-structured problem scenario to facilitate design and engineering lessons in the FabLab (fabrication laboratory).…

Marshall, Jill A.; Harron, Jason R. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
The maker movement has strong connections to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) as well as art and crafts, but the goals of making are not in perfect alignment with any of these disciplines. Within the problem-based paradigm, however, there is room to incorporate making as situated STEM learning, even in formal,…
