Beyond Problem-Based Learning: Using Dynamic PBL in Chemistry
Overton, Tina L.; Randles, Christopher A.
Chemistry Education Research and Practice, v16 n2 p251-259 2015
This paper describes the development and implementation of a novel pedagogy, dynamic problem-based learning. The pedagogy utilises real-world problems that evolve throughout the problem-based learning activity and provide students with choice and different data sets. This new dynamic problem-based learning approach was utilised to teach sustainable development to first year chemistry undergraduates. Results indicate that the resources described here motivated students to learn about sustainability and successfully developed a range of transferable skills.
