Sockalingam, Nachamma; Schmidt, Henk G. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2011
This study aimed to identify salient problem characteristics perceived by students in problem-based curricula. To this end, reflective essays from biomedical students (N = 34) on characteristics of good problems were text-analyzed. Students identified eleven characteristics, of which they found the extent to which the problem leads to desired…

Grant, Michael M. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2011
Project-based learning offers promise as an instructional method that affords authentic learning tasks grounded in the personal interests of learners. While previous research has presented results of learning gains, motivations, and teacher experiences, limited empirical research has presented student perspectives in project-based learning. This…

Beddoes, Kacey D.; Jesiek, Brent K.; Borrego, Maura – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2010
We report on the results of a study to examine the global state of engineering education research on problem-and project-based learning (PBL). This paper has two major aims. First, we analyze a large collection of conference papers and journal articles to report on research trends in PBL, including in specific, leading countries. Second, based…

Pierrakos, Olga; Zilberberg, Anna; Anderson, Robin – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2010
There has been criticism about STEM education not focusing enough on problem solving, especially in authentic real-world contexts which are most often associated to ill-structured domains. To improve education, it is essential that curricula bring students to high levels of cognitive development by exposing them to authentic problems.…

Turns, Jennifer; Cuddihy, Elisabeth; Guan, Zhiwei – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2010
In this work, we sought to understand ways that students experienced a small-scale portfolio assignment provided to them as an opportunity reflect on their experiences in a project-based class. This work was motivated by research in various instructional contexts showing that portfolio construction results in important learning outcomes. We wanted…

Zhang, Meilan; Lundeberg, Mary; McConnell, Tom J.; Koehler, Matthew J.; Eberhardt, Jan – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2010
Previous research has shown that questioning is a key strategy that facilitators use to promote discussion in Problem-Based Learning (PBL). Yet, there is a lack of detailed understanding on what questions facilitators ask and how those questions affect discussion. In this study we examined different types of questions that experienced facilitators…

Dabbagh, Nada; Blijd, Cecily Williams – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2010
The purpose of this case study was to examine students' perceptions of their learning experiences while working on a real world instructional design project in a performance oriented team in the context of a situated and problem-based learning environment. Participants were 11 graduate students enrolled in a learning-by-doing instructional design…

Ge, Xun; Huang, Kun; Dong, Yifei – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2010
A semester-long ethnography study was carried out to investigate project-based learning in a graduate software engineering course through the implementation of an Open-Source Software Development (OSSD) learning environment, which featured authentic projects, learning community, cognitive apprenticeship, and technology affordances. The study…

Ge, Xun; Planas, Lourdes G.; Er, Nelson – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2010
An experimental study was conducted to investigate the effects of question prompts and peer review on scaffolding students' problem-based learning in a web-based cognitive support system. Ninety-six pharmacy students were randomly assigned to a treatment or control condition. The students in both conditions were asked to generate solutions to a…

Walker, Andrew; Leary, Heather – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2009
Problem based learning (PBL) in its most current form originated in Medical Education but has since been used in a variety of disciplines (Savery & Duffy, 1995) at a variety of educational levels (Savery, 2006). Although recent meta analyses have been conducted (Dochy, Segers, Van den Bossche, & Gijbels, 2003; Gijbels, Dochy, Van den…

Strobel, Johannes; van Barneveld, Angela – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2009
Problem-based learning (PBL) has been utilized for over 40 years in a variety of different disciplines. Although extensively researched, there is heated debate about the effectiveness of PBL. Several meta-analyses were conducted that provided a synthesis of the effects of PBL in comparison to traditional forms of instruction. This study used a…

Belland, Brian R.; French, Brian F.; Ertmer, Peggy A. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2009
Problem-based learning (PBL) spread from the medical school to other university and K-12 contexts due, in part, to the stated promise that PBL produces the target outcomes of deep content learning, increased problem-solving ability, and increased self-directed learning (Hmelo-Silver, 2004). However, research results have been unclear. This paper…

Andrews, Dee H.; Hull, Thomas D.; Donahue, Jennifer A. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2009
This paper discusses the theoretical and empirical foundations of the use of storytelling in instruction. The definition of "story" is given and four instructional methods are identified related to storytelling: case-based, narrative-based, scenario-based, and problem-based instruction. The article provides descriptions of the four…

Hmelo-Silver, Cindy E.; Derry, Sharon J.; Bitterman, Alan; Hatrak, Natalie – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2009
Helping students in the professions apply conceptual ideas to the problems of practice is a key goal of problem-based learning (PBL). Because PBL is organized around small, collaborative groups, scaling up PBL to large, heterogeneous classes poses significant challenges for implementation. This study presents a hybrid model that mixes online and…

Kang, Weiqun Courtney; Jordan, Elizabeth; Porath, Marion – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2009
The current study aimed to explore and articulate some of the key issues in problem-oriented learning (POL), in the context of health care education. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with faculties representing four different health care disciplines around common issues identified in a prior survey study. Thematic analysis of the…
