Transitioning to the Real World through Problem-Based Learning: A Collaborative Approach to Teacher Preparation
Barron, Lisa; Wells, Lauren
Journal of Learning in Higher Education, v9 n2 p13-18 Fall 2013
Problem-based learning (PBL) creates opportunities for authentic learning in teacher preparation programs. In addition to developing content knowledge and pedagogy, problem-based learning affords students the framework for a holistic, collaborative approach to solving several interconnected problems. As students move through the process of problem-solving, they take ownership of their learning and build self-confidence. This in-depth, guided learning opportunity with peers provides benefits beyond the university classroom and transfers directly into the real world. Students internalize problem-solving methods and are prepared to apply this knowledge not only in their classrooms, but in their personal lives as well.
