Cennamo, Katherine; Brandt, Carol; Scott, Brigitte; Douglas, Sarah; McGrath, Margarita; Reimer, Yolanda; Vernon, Mitzi – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2011
The ill-structured nature of design problems makes them particularly challenging for problem-based learning. Studio-based learning (SBL), however, has much in common with problem-based learning and indeed has a long history of use in teaching students to solve design problems. The purpose of this ethnographic study of an industrial design class,…

O'Donoghue, Grainne; McMahon, Sinead; Doody, Catherine; Smith, Kathyrn; Cusack, Tara – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2011
Although there has been growing interest in problem-based learning (PBL) by professional entry-level therapy educators, its effectiveness is as yet unclear. Existing overviews of the field do not provide high-quality evidence in terms of the effectiveness or otherwise of PBL in professional therapy education. The purposes of this article is to…

Jonassen, David – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2011
Although the characteristics of PBL (problem focused, student centered, self-directed, etc.) are well known, the components of a problem-based learning environment (PBLE) and the cognitive scaffolds necessary to support learning to solve different kinds of problems with different learners is less clear. This paper identifies the different…

Walker, Andrew; Recker, Mimi; Robertshaw, M. Brooke; Osen, Jeffrey; Leary, Heather; Ye, Lei; Sellers, Linda – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2011
This article describes two consecutive enactments of technology-oriented teacher professional development designs, aimed at helping teachers find high-quality online learning resources and use them in designing effective problem-based learning (PBL) activities for their students. To align with current professional development prescriptions, in the…

Hakkarainen, Päivi – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2011
This paper reports on a design-based research for designing, implementing, and refining a problem-based learning (PBL) course on educational digital video at the University of Lapland's Faculty of Education. The course builds on a combination of problem solving in small group tutorial sessions and realizing a practical hands-on project during…

Sockalingam, Nachamma; Schmidt, Henk G. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2011
This study aimed to identify salient problem characteristics perceived by students in problem-based curricula. To this end, reflective essays from biomedical students (N = 34) on characteristics of good problems were text-analyzed. Students identified eleven characteristics, of which they found the extent to which the problem leads to desired…

Grant, Michael M. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2011
Project-based learning offers promise as an instructional method that affords authentic learning tasks grounded in the personal interests of learners. While previous research has presented results of learning gains, motivations, and teacher experiences, limited empirical research has presented student perspectives in project-based learning. This…

Beddoes, Kacey D.; Jesiek, Brent K.; Borrego, Maura – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2010
We report on the results of a study to examine the global state of engineering education research on problem-and project-based learning (PBL). This paper has two major aims. First, we analyze a large collection of conference papers and journal articles to report on research trends in PBL, including in specific, leading countries. Second, based…

Pierrakos, Olga; Zilberberg, Anna; Anderson, Robin – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2010
There has been criticism about STEM education not focusing enough on problem solving, especially in authentic real-world contexts which are most often associated to ill-structured domains. To improve education, it is essential that curricula bring students to high levels of cognitive development by exposing them to authentic problems.…

Turns, Jennifer; Cuddihy, Elisabeth; Guan, Zhiwei – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2010
In this work, we sought to understand ways that students experienced a small-scale portfolio assignment provided to them as an opportunity reflect on their experiences in a project-based class. This work was motivated by research in various instructional contexts showing that portfolio construction results in important learning outcomes. We wanted…

Zhang, Meilan; Lundeberg, Mary; McConnell, Tom J.; Koehler, Matthew J.; Eberhardt, Jan – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2010
Previous research has shown that questioning is a key strategy that facilitators use to promote discussion in Problem-Based Learning (PBL). Yet, there is a lack of detailed understanding on what questions facilitators ask and how those questions affect discussion. In this study we examined different types of questions that experienced facilitators…

Dabbagh, Nada; Blijd, Cecily Williams – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2010
The purpose of this case study was to examine students' perceptions of their learning experiences while working on a real world instructional design project in a performance oriented team in the context of a situated and problem-based learning environment. Participants were 11 graduate students enrolled in a learning-by-doing instructional design…

Ge, Xun; Huang, Kun; Dong, Yifei – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2010
A semester-long ethnography study was carried out to investigate project-based learning in a graduate software engineering course through the implementation of an Open-Source Software Development (OSSD) learning environment, which featured authentic projects, learning community, cognitive apprenticeship, and technology affordances. The study…

Ge, Xun; Planas, Lourdes G.; Er, Nelson – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2010
An experimental study was conducted to investigate the effects of question prompts and peer review on scaffolding students' problem-based learning in a web-based cognitive support system. Ninety-six pharmacy students were randomly assigned to a treatment or control condition. The students in both conditions were asked to generate solutions to a…

Walker, Andrew; Leary, Heather – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2009
Problem based learning (PBL) in its most current form originated in Medical Education but has since been used in a variety of disciplines (Savery & Duffy, 1995) at a variety of educational levels (Savery, 2006). Although recent meta analyses have been conducted (Dochy, Segers, Van den Bossche, & Gijbels, 2003; Gijbels, Dochy, Van den…
