The Power of Problem-Based Learning in Teaching Introductory Science Courses.
Allen, Deborah E.; And Others
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n68 p43-52 Win 1996
In its use of complex, real-world problems to introduce concepts and motivate learning in an active and cooperative learning environment, problem-based learning is a powerful alternative to the passive lecture in introductory college science. Use of technology and multimedia instruction, focus on large classes, and use of interdisciplinary problems to promote science literacy are among the newest approaches. (MSE)
