Effectiveness of Problem-based Learning Curricula: Research and Theory.
Colliver, Jerry A.
Academic Medicine, v75 n3 p259-66 Mar 2000
Critical review of the literature on problem-based learning (PBL) in medical education focuses on: (1) the credibility of claims (both empirical and theoretical) about the ties between PBL and educational outcomes and (2) the magnitude of the effects. Concludes there is no convincing evidence that PBL improves knowledge base and clinical performance, at least not sufficient to justify required resources. (Author/DB)
