Silver, Edward A.; Snider, Rachel B. – Issues in Teacher Education, 2014

Walton, Janet – Issues in Teacher Education, 2014
The label of "teacher" is something of a misnomer for the problem-based learning (PBL) practitioner. Rather than acting as a source of content knowledge, PBL educators are lead learners who demonstrate learning to students through their own authentic inquiry (Hmelo-Silver, 2004). PBL educators and students travel a road together that…
