Servant-Miklos, Virginie – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2020
This paper addresses one of the major confusions in the study and practice of problem-based learning today, namely the use of the term "problem-based learning" to refer to both the small-group tutorial method pioneered by McMaster University and Maastricht University in medical education, and the problem-oriented project-work method…

Tawfik, Andrew A.; Hung, Woei; Giabbanelli, Philippe J. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2020
To date, there are currently many variations of inquiry-based instruction including problem-based learning (PBL), lecture prior to problem solving, and case-based learning (CBL). While each claim to support problem-solving, they also include different levels of student-centeredness and instructor support. From an educational perspective, further…

Noordzij, Gera; Wijnia, Lisette – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2020
The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of perceived problem quality in the relationship between students' (N = 226) achievement goals and autonomous motivation to study in a problem-based learning (PBL) environment. Specifically, the relationships between students' achievement goals (mastery-approach, performance-approach,…

Claramita, Mora; Prabandari, Yayi Suryo; Graber, Abraham; Scherpbier, Albert J. J. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2020
Medical schools worldwide are promoting a student-centered and patient-centered care curriculum by using problem-based learning (PBL) strategy, emphasizing group dynamics and discussions. This approach facilitates student engagement, participation, and partnership interaction. However, in the context of the wide power-distance or the existence of…

Virtue, Emily E.; Hinnant-Crawford, Brandi N. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
Supporters of project-based learning (PBL) argue that outcomes from the model include better performance in academic (Bell, 2010; Thomas, 2000) and non-academic outcomes (Saunders-Steward, Gyles, & Shore, 2010). The New Tech Network (NTN) is a school improvement network that provides training and development for high school faculty who commit…

Mahmood, Dina; Jacobo, Hugo – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
In an effort to adopt more equitable and humanizing grading practices, this teacher inquiry explores how educators attempted to improve students' views of learning and assessments by utilizing rubrics on a sliding scale. Using the sliding scale rubric approach to grading provided an opportunity for students and educators to rethink how learning is…

Shuster, Michèle I.; Curtiss, Jennifer; Wright, Timothy F.; Champion, Camilla; Sharifi, Maryam; Bosland, Judith – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
We are examining the impact of a course-based undergraduate research experience (CURE) at a land-grant, Hispanic-serving institution in the southwestern United States. Students in our CURE completed one or two extended research projects over a single semester. Our CURE enrolled a high proportion of underrepresented minority students (70.3%),…

Svihla, Vanessa; Kubik, Tim; Stevens-Shauger, Tori – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
While performance assessment (PA) is well aligned to project-based learning (PjBL), teachers find it challenging to design and implement PA that is faithful to the authentic context of their projects and viewed externally as rigorous. In contrast to standardizing PA tasks--thereby diminishing authenticity--we formed a research-practice partnership…

Culclasure, Brooke T.; Longest, Kyle C.; Terry, Troy M. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
Project-based learning (PjBL) as a PK-12 instructional model is growing nationwide. PjBL is seen as a mechanism to deliver academic content in a more engaging way for students and in a way that stresses the development of skills critical to success in the 21st-century workforce. Because of its increasing popularity and the disparate breadth of…

Kim, Nam Ju; Belland, Brian R.; Axelrod, Daryl – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
Establishing optimal challenge enhances intrinsic motivation, interest, and the probability of success in the learning activity. In K-12 problem-based learning (PBL), students may struggle to address associated tasks that are beyond their current ability levels. This paper suggested learner-centered scaffolding systems (LSS) to improve K-12…

Liu, Min; Liu, Sa; Pan, Zilong; Zou, Wenting; Li, Chenglu – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
Most of the previous problem-based learning (PBL) studies have been conducted with gifted or regular education students and have shown successes. However, little research on PBL exists for disadvantaged middle school students, especially students who are considered to be at risk of failing academically. In this study, we examined the use of a…
