Du, Xiangyun; Chaaban, Youmen – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2020
This study investigated the readiness of teachers towards implementing project-based learning (PjBL), mandated by a top-down policy at the national level, in Qatari government primary schools. With multiple qualitative data, the study reported a lack of readiness among teachers at the initial stage of change. Despite good intentions, the change…

Thorndahl, Kathrine Liedtke; Stentoft, Diana – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2020
It is often assumed that problem-based learning is an effective approach for fostering the development and/or improvement of students' critical thinking. To shed light on the connection between problem-based learning and critical thinking, this scoping review maps out how the notion of critical thinking is conceptualized in relation to…

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…

Warr, Melissa; West, Richard E. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2020
This article describes the implementation of an interdisciplinary design studio as a means to teach creative problem-solving through project-based learning. "Learning and Innovation Skills" has been designated as a core skill that students need to be successful in today's world, and project-based learning is one approach to helping…

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…

Shuster, Michèle; Glazewski, Krista; Villa, Christopher – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2020
In an effort to address K-8 teacher confidence in STEM and increase basic genetics knowledge to a level consistent with its importance in society, we have developed, implemented, and evaluated a 7-day teacher professional development workshop. The overarching goal of our workshop is to facilitate the implementation of innovative DNA-based…

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,…

Rehmat, Abeera P.; Hartley, Kendall – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2020
Educators in the twenty-first century need to think of innovative ways to engage and prepare students for current and future challenges while cultivating an interest among students in STEM disciplines. This study sought to investigate the impact of problem-based learning on students' content knowledge and critical thinking towards STEM. This study…

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…

Gomoli, Andrea; Hillenburg, Becky; Hmelo-Silver, Cindy E. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2020
Video and co-design can be powerful tools to enrich problem-based learning experiences. We explore how a teacher and researcher engaged in co-design of a PBL experience focused on human-centered robotics as well as the resulting design. They explored the question "How can we design a robot that serves a need in our local community?" We…

Caswell, Cynthia A. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
This conceptual article begins with a general definition of reflection and the soft skills of PBL: collaboration, agency, and metacognition. Then it presents theoretical frameworks for reflection from second language teacher education (SLTE) (Farrell, 2015; Pennington & Richards, 2016) and illustrates six types of reflection with examples from…

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%),…

Odell, Michael R. L.; Kennedy, Teresa J.; Stocks, Eric – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
Project/problem-based learning (PBL) can provide an effective model for school reform when implemented with fidelity. In the report, "Rising Above the Gathering Storm," it was recommended that if the U.S. is to remain competitive in the 21st-century economy, there must be a serious effort to "enlarge the pipeline of students who are…

Kelley, Kristi W.; Fowlin, Julaine M.; Tawfik, Andrew A.; Anderson, Max C. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2019
Practitioners in the field of pharmacy are often confronted with ill-structured problems. Specifically, pharmacists are tasked with making patient-specific recommendations that are both safe and effective, which requires combining knowledge from the biomedical, behavioral, and pharmaceutical sciences. Given the dynamic nature of pharmacy as a…

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…
