Using Problem-Based Pre-Class Activities to Prepare Students for In-Class Learning
Alayont, Feryal
PRIMUS, v24 n2 p138-148 2014
This article presents a problem-based approach that prepares students for future learning in the classroom. In this approach, students complete problem-based activities before coming to class to familiarize themselves with the topics to be covered. After the discussion on how the use of these activities relate to the learning and transfer theories, the structure of the activities is described in detail. Specific examples in a variety of topics are provided. Student perceptions of these activities based on anonymous course evaluations are also included.
