Technology and Problem-Based Learning
Uden, Lorna; Beaumont, Chris
Information Science Publishing
Problem-based learning (PBL) has been the focus of many developments in teaching and learning facilitation in recent years. It has been claimed that PBL produces independent learners who are motivated, engaged in deep learning, work as a team, and develop effective strategies, skills and knowledge for life-long learning and professional work. Technology and Problem-Based Learning is aimed at educators who may be considering introducing PBL and need to know what it involves, its benefits and the practical details of how to implement it. "Technology and Problem-Based Learning" provides practical advice grounded in research and experience, to enable tutors to introduce PBL quickly and effectively. It also covers major issues including rationale for PBL, how to write effective problems, preparing students and tutors, being an effective facilitator, assessing students, dealing with problems, using IT. Twelve chapters are included: (1) Traditional vs. Cognitive Learning; (2) What is Problem-Based Learning?; (3) Why Problem-Based Learning; (4) The Tutor's Role; (5) Preparing Students for PBL; (6) Developing Problems / Triggers; (7) The Tutorial Process; (8) Assessment; (9) Integrating E-Learning Technology; (10) Curriculum and Organisational Issues; (11) Lessons Learned and Tips; and (12) Postscript.
