Problem-Based Teaching: A Bridge to Meaningful Learning. Teacher Facilitator Guide. A Professional Development Videotape Series.
Boggs, Heather; Laurenson, Sandra
This facilitator guide is intended for use with a series of three videotapes designed to help teachers, staff developers, administrators, and teacher educators engage teachers in ongoing professional development supporting the implementation of a problem-based teaching approach in vocational education. The guide's introduction discusses the following: the videotapes' development, purpose, and content; use of action research to help teachers improve their practice; and use of the guide and videotapes to facilitate group study. The next section is an overview of the teacher activities included on the three tapes, which are devoted to the following topics: teaching process skills; teaching through practical problems; and teaching for practical action. Each section in the overview includes the following: synopsis of the videotape, set of preview questions; reflection and inquiry activities; and action research opportunities to guide teachers through the process of using new techniques and reflecting on their effectiveness. The second half of the guide consists of handout and overhead masters referenced to the videotapes. A list of 20 suggested print resources is included along with an annotated list of related products that would help teachers implement a problem-based approach. (MN)
