Designing Problem-Based Learning Units.
Stepien, William J.; Pyke, Sharon L.
Journal for the Education of the Gifted, v20 n4 p380-400 Sum 1997
This discussion of problem-based learning (PBL) first describes well-structured and ill-structured problems and then offers a systematic process for finding potential PBL topics. The process involves constructing brainstorming maps to explore potential PBL units and then designing the student's role, the situation the student meets at the unit's opening, and assessment.
