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…

Ju, Hyunjung; Choi, Ikseon – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
One of the important goals of problem-based learning (PBL) in medical education is to enhance medical students' clinical reasoning--hypothetico-deductive reasoning (HDR) in particular--through small group discussions. However, few studies have focused on explicit strategies for promoting students' HDR during group discussions in PBL. This paper…

Grob, Regula; Holmeier, Monika; Labudde, Peter – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2017
Inquiry-based education has been part of innovative science teaching for the last few decades. With the competence orientation now underlying many national curricula, one of the emerging questions is how the development of student competences can be fostered in the context of inquiry-based science education. One approach to supporting students in…

Jin, Jun; Bridges, Susan – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2016
Context: Qualitative methodologies are relatively new in health sciences education research, especially in the area of problem-based learning (PBL). A key advantage of qualitative approaches is the ability to gain in-depth, textured insights into educational phenomena. Key methodological issues arise, however, in terms of the strategies of…

Almajed, Abdulaziz; Skinner, Vicki; Peterson, Ray; Winning, Tracey – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2016
Collaborative learning (CL), a core component of inquiry-based learning approaches, aims to support students' development of key skills (e.g., working in multidisciplinary teams). To design effective CL activities, we need to understand students' perceptions about CL. However, few studies have examined students' understandings of CL. This…

Hutchison, Micol – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2016
Empathy and interdisciplinarity are both concepts that are current and relevant--across professions, in research, and in academia. This paper describes a large, interdisciplinary, project-based assignment, the Empathy Project, which allows students to delve into and increase comfort and skill with interdisciplinary thinking and collaborative…

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,…

Creghan, Casey; Adair-Creghan, Kathleen – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2015
Students who do not regularly attend high school are at an increased risk of failure in the classroom and may eventually contribute to a higher dropout rate. More specifically, the attendance rates of students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds have traditionally been lower than those with average means. Therefore, the purpose of this…

Glazewski, Krista D.; Shuster, Michèle; Brush, Thomas A.; Ellis, Andrea – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2014
Socioscientific Inquiry (SSI) represents one approach designed to target interest and knowledge in science. In this context, students consider scientific issues that have social implications and require a range of trade-offs, concepts, and considerations in order to arrive at informed conclusions (Sadler, 2004). However, inquiry tasks in general…

Brush, Thomas; Saye, John – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2014
For over a decade, we have collaborated with secondary school history teachers in an evolving line of inquiry that applies research-based propositions to the design and testing of a problem-based learning framework and a set of wise practices that represent a professional teaching knowledge base for implementing a particular model of instruction,…

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…

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.…

Brush, Thomas; Saye, John – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2008
This research extends a continuing line of inquiry investigating how multimedia resources might be joined with other support structures to effectively implement problem-based inquiry (PBI) activities in secondary history classrooms. Two history teachers with experience in PBI implemented a technology-supported problem-based civil rights unit in…
