Watson, Sunnie Lee; Koehler, Adrie A.; Ertmer, Peggy; Kim, WooRi; Rico, Rudy – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
Promoting and sustaining effective discussion--that which contributes to learning--is a skill that eludes many instructors (Darling-Hammond, 2008; Ge, Yamashiro, & Lee, 2000). This study explored the role and strategies of an expert instructor in an online advanced instructional design (ID) course that utilized a case-based learning (CBL)…

Schettino, Carmel – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2016
One recommendation for encouraging young women and other underrepresented students in their mathematical studies is to find instructional methods, such as problem-based learning (PBL), that allow them to feel included in the learning process. Using a more relationally centered pedagogy along with more inclusive instructional methods may be a way…

Skinner, Vicki J.; Braunack-Mayer, Annette; Winning, Tracey A. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2016
A problem-based learning (PBL) assumption is that silence is incompatible with collaborative learning. Although sociocultural studies have reinterpreted silence as collaborative, we must understand how silence occurs in PBL groups. This essay presents students' explanations of dominance, leadership, and silence as PBL group roles. An ethnographic…

Svihla, Vanessa; Reeve, Richard – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2016
While problem solving is a relatively well understood process, problem framing is less well understood, particularly with regard to supporting students to learn as they frame problems. Project-based learning classrooms are an ideal setting to investigate how teachers facilitate this process. Using participant observation, this study investigated…

Ju, Hyunjung; Choi, Ikseon; Rhee, Byoung Doo; Tae-Lee, Jong – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2016
How people learn is influenced by the cultural contexts in which their learning occurs. This qualitative case study explored challenges Korean medical students and tutors experienced during their PBL sessions from a cultural perspective using Hofstede's cultural dimensions. Twelve preclinical medical students and nine tutors from a large Korean…

Rodgers, Kelsey J.; Horvath, Aladar K.; Jung, Hyunyi; Fry, Amanda S.; Diefes-Dux, Heidi A.; Cardella, Monica E. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2015
Authentic open-ended problems are increasingly appearing in university classrooms at all levels. Formative feedback that leads to learning and improved student work products is a challenge, particularly in large enrollment courses. This is a case study of one first-year engineering student team's experience with teaching assistant and peer…

Skinner, Vicki J.; Braunack-Mayer, Annette; Winning, Tracey A. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2015
Groups are central to problem-based learning (PBL) and educational and professional outcomes relevant to clinical education. However, PBL groups in practice may differ from theoretical conceptions of groups. Therefore, this study explored students' understandings of the purpose and value of PBL groups for their learning. We conducted a…

Jin, Jun; Bridges, Susan M.; Botelho, Michael G.; Chan, Lap Ki – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2015
This study aims to explore how online searching plays a role during PBL tutorials in two undergraduate health sciences curricula, Medicine and Dentistry. Utilizing Interactional Ethnography (IE) as an organizing framework for data collection and analysis, and drawing on a critical theory of technology as an explanatory lens, enabled a textured…

Ertmer, Peggy A.; Schlosser, Sarah; Clase, Kari; Adedokun, Omolola – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2014
A mixed-methods research study was designed to examine teachers' knowledge and confidence for implementing a STEM-based problem-based learning (PBL) unit in their 6-12 grade science and math classrooms. Twenty-one teachers (7 in-service and 13 pre-service) participated in an intensive two-week summer workshop during which they engaged in, and then…

Ravitz, Jason; Blazevski, Juliane – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2014
This study examines the relationships between teacher-reported use of online resources, and preparedness, implementation challenges, and time spent implementing project- or problem-based learning, or approaches that are similar to what we call "PBL" in general. Variables were measured using self-reports from those who teach in reform…

Lee, Jean S.; Blackwell, Sue; Drake, Jennifer; Moran, Kathryn A. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2014
This study examines two aspects of teaching with a project-based learning (PBL) model in higher education settings: faculty definitions of PBL and faculty PBL practices, as evidenced by their self-described successes and challenges in implementation. Faculty participants took "a leap of faith" in their teaching practices to redefine what…

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…

Swan, Karen; Vahey, Philip; van 't Hooft, Mark; Kratcoski, Annette; Rafanan, Ken; Stanford, Tina; Yarnall, Louise; Cook, Dale – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2013
The research reported in this paper explores the applicability and efficacy of a variant of problem-based learning, the Preparation for Future Learning (PFL) approach, to teaching and learning within the context of a cross-curricular, middle school data literacy unit called "Thinking with Data" (TWD). A quasi-experimental design was used…

West, Richard E.; Williams, Greg; Williams, David – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2013
In this case study, we researched one cohort from the Center for Animation, a higher education teaching environment that has successfully fostered group creativity and learning outcomes through problem-based learning. Through live and videotaped observations of the interactions of this community over 18 months, in addition to focused interviews…

Asghar, Anila; Ellington, Roni; Rice, Eric; Johnson, Francine; Prime, Glenda M. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2012
Science education scholars emphasize the significance of an integrative, interdisciplinary STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education that encourages students to learn about the natural world through exploration, inquiry, and problem-solving experiences. This article reports on a professional development program aimed at…
