Using the Tenets of Problem Based Learning in the Development of Small Group Experiences in the Rehabilitative Environment
Zipp, Genevieve Pinto; Shah, Ashlesha
Journal of College Teaching & Learning, v6 n5 p73-76 Sep 2009
Purpose: Professional health science educational programs have utilized numerous learning strategies including journals, practice patterns, problem-based learning (PBL), case-studies, and hypothesis-oriented algorithm for clinicians (HOAC) (Shepard et al., 2002). While, these learning strategies have found a place in the health science educational curriculums they have not been utilized in the clinic with patients. This essay provides a brief overview on the tenets of small group work associated with PBL and offers insight into how small groups may be used in the clinic as a teaching strategy. Importance: While this essay does not offer data to support the use of small group work as a learning technique for the promotion of patient problem solving it does provide a medium for the exchange of ideas which may lead to future research in this area.
