Learning To Reason through Discourse in a Problem-based Learning Group.
Frederiksen, Carl H.
Discourse Processes, v27 n2 p135-60 1999
Examines the discourse of a problem-based learning group in medicine. Finds evidence of a differential diagnosis frame to organize the group's diagnostic inquiry procedures; coconstruction of explanatory case models linking causes to clinical symptoms through interactive discussion; processes of collaborative reasoning in evaluating alternative causal hypotheses for clinical evidence; and different contributions made by speakers to the collaborative problem solving.
