Dealing with Insecurity in Problem Oriented Learning Approaches--The Importance of Problem Formulation
Jensen, Annie Aarup; Lund, Birthe
Journal of Problem Based Learning in Higher Education, v4 n1 p53-70 2016
Introduction of a pedagogical concept, Kubus, in a problem oriented learning context--analysed within the framework of an activity system--indicates what might happen when offering tools tempting to influence and regulate students' learning approach and hereby neglecting the importance of existing habits and values. Introduction of this new approach challenges existing "truisms". It implies a reconsideration of the role of insecurity and how it is connected to questioning the given thus supporting development of new knowledge. However, dealing with insecurity seems to be a neglected area within a problem oriented learning approach.
