Wijnen, Marit; Loyens, Sofie M. M.; Smeets, Guus; Kroeze, Maarten J.; Van der Molen, Henk T. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2017
A few years ago, the Erasmus School of Law implemented problem-based learning (PBL) as an instructional method in the bachelor's program. Transition to a PBL program often brings some difficulties for the teaching staff. To find out whether the implementation at the Erasmus School of Law has been successful, students and teachers were asked about…

Sipes, Shannon M. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2017
Few of the papers published in journals and conference proceedings on problem-based learning (PBL) are empirical studies, and most of these use self-report as the measure of PBL (Beddoes, Jesiek, & Borrego, 2010). The current study provides a theoretically derived matrix for coding and classifying PBL that was objectively applied to official…

Euler, Dieter; Kühner, Patrizia – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2017
The following research question serves as the starting point of this research and development project: How, in the context of a didactic design, can problem-based assignments trigger learning activities for the development of ethical and reflective competencies in students in economics courses? This paper focuses on the design of problem-based…

Merritt, Joi; Lee, Mi Yeon; Rillero, Peter; Kinach, Barbara M. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2017
This systematic literature review was conducted to explore the effectiveness of problem-based and project-based learning (PBL) implemented with students in early elementary to grade 8 (ages 3-14) in mathematics and science classrooms. Nine studies met the following inclusion criteria: (a) focus on PBL, (b) experimental study, (c) kindergarten to…

Kumar, Rita; Refaei, Brenda – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2017
Convinced of the power of PBL to promote students' critical thinking as demonstrated by its application across disciplines, we designed a series of problems for students in a second-year writing course. We collected samples of their writing before and after implementation of the problems. We were concerned about whether PBL pedagogy would…

Hemker, Laura; Prescher, Claudia; Narciss, Susanne – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2017
Problem-based learning can have a great impact on the acquisition of practical knowledge, which is a central learning aim in the field of teacher education. Therefore, we implemented a problem-based learning approach in four seminars on educational assessment. In this paper, we outline our didactic design and discuss the results of the first…

Dole, Sharon; Bloom, Lisa; Doss, Kristy K. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2017
This study used structured online interviews with teachers to examine the impact that inquiry-based teaching methods had on their students. The research question was the following: What are the effects on student learning and motivation as a result of teachers using problem-based and project-based learning? Interviews were conducted with 36…

Brassler, Mirjam; Dettmers, Jan – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2017
Interdisciplinary competence is important in academia for both employability and sustainable development. However, to date, there are no specific interdisciplinary education models and, naturally, no empirical studies to assess them. Since problem-based learning (PBL) and project-based learning (PjBL) are learning approaches that emphasize…

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…

Stanton, Marie T.; Guerin, Suzanne; Barret, Terry – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2017
The purpose of this article is to present and discuss the reported impact of a fully problem-based learning (PBL) master's program on the way graduates worked with patients and colleagues in Ireland. These graduates had completed a sixteen-month fully PBL master's in sonography while concurrently working in clinical practice. Semi-structured…

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…

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…

Major, Thenjiwe; Mulvihill, Thalia M. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2017
The development of primary school teachers is an important aspect of a country's economic, social, and political well-being. The use of particular pedagogies in teacher education may greatly influence how teachers perform in their classrooms after completing their training programs. This micro-ethnography investigated the extent to which teacher…

Makin, David A. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2016
In the 1970s, Egon Bitner offered a critique of police academy training, signified by the ability to train compliant soldier-bureaucrats rather than competent practitioners. Over the years, subsequent training models have been implemented, evaluated, and modified in an attempt to exceed what has been deemed adequate training. This research…
