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…

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…

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…

Servant, Virginie F. C.; Dewar, Eleanor F. A. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2015
Although Malaysia was the first country in Asia to adopt problem-based learning (PBL), the impact that this has had on its tutors remains largely unexplored. This paper details a qualitative study of the changing perceptions of teaching roles in two groups of problem-based learning tutors in two institutional contexts--one in medicine located in…

L'Ecuyer, Kristine; Pole, David; Leander, Sheila A. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2015
A problem-based learning (PBL) framework was utilized in a series of six interprofessional team seminars (IPTS) for postbaccalaureate students from seven health professions. The goal of IPTS was to develop a collaborative practice-ready workforce prepared to respond to patient care needs through use of concrete examples, skills development,…

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…
