Students' Experience of Problem-Based Learning in Virtual Space
Gibbings, Peter; Lidstone, John; Bruce, Christine
Higher Education Research and Development, v34 n1 p74-88 2015
This paper reports outcomes of a study focused on discovering qualitatively different ways students experience problem-based learning in virtual space. A well-accepted and documented qualitative research method was adopted for this study. Five qualitatively different conceptions are described, each revealing characteristics of increasingly complex student experiences. Establishing characteristics of these more complex experiences assists teachers in facilitating students' engagement and encouraging deeper learning.
