Smith, Shaunna – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
In the context of a 10-day summer camp makerspace experience that employed design-based learning (DBL) strategies, the purpose of this descriptive case study was to better understand the ways in which children use visualization skills to negotiate design as they move back and forth between the world of nondigital design techniques (i.e., drawing,…

Parekh, Priyanka; Gee, Elisabeth R. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
The Maker Movement has been received by the field of K--12 education with great enthusiasm as a way of teaching STEM content to children. We call attention to and identify learning opportunities in children's projects created in a playful, informal environment with easily available materials. In keeping with research in the field of maker…

Hirshfield, Laura; Koretsky, Milo D. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
The use of problem-based learning (PBL) is gaining attention in the engineering classroom as a way to help students synthesize foundational knowledge and to better prepare students for practice. In this work, we study the discourse interactions between 27 student teams and two instructors in an engineering PBL environment to analyze how…

Schmidt, Matthew; Tawfik, Andrew A. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
This article describes the iterative design, development, and evaluation of a case-based learning environment focusing on an ill-structured sales management problem. We discuss our processes and situate them within the broader framework of educational design research. The learning environment evolved over the course of three design phases. A…

Ju, Hyunjung; Choi, Ikseon – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
One of the important goals of problem-based learning (PBL) in medical education is to enhance medical students' clinical reasoning--hypothetico-deductive reasoning (HDR) in particular--through small group discussions. However, few studies have focused on explicit strategies for promoting students' HDR during group discussions in PBL. This paper…

Watson, Sunnie Lee; Koehler, Adrie A.; Ertmer, Peggy; Kim, WooRi; Rico, Rudy – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
Promoting and sustaining effective discussion--that which contributes to learning--is a skill that eludes many instructors (Darling-Hammond, 2008; Ge, Yamashiro, & Lee, 2000). This study explored the role and strategies of an expert instructor in an online advanced instructional design (ID) course that utilized a case-based learning (CBL)…

Hartman, Pamela; Renguette, Corinne; Seig, Mary Theresa – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
We designed a professional development (PD) teacher-mentor program that used problem-based learning (PBL) to accomplish two goals. First, teachers explored how PBL could be used effectively in their classrooms to change the way they think about teaching to include literacy development in content areas. Second, PBL was the basis for PD training to…

Watson, Rachel M.; Willford, John D.; Pfeifer, Mariel A. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
In this study, a problem-based capstone course was designed to assess the University of Wyoming Microbiology Program's skill-based and process-based student learning objectives. Students partnered with a local farm, a community garden, and a free downtown clinic in order to conceptualize, propose, perform, and present studies addressing problems…

Rillero, Peter; Camposeco, Laurie – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
Teachers' problem-based learning knowledge, abilities, and attitudes are important factors in successful K--12 PBL implementations. This article describes the development and use of a free, online module entitled "Design a Problem-Based Learning Experience." The module production, aligned with theories of andragogy, was a partnership…

Rillero, Peter; Koerner, Mari; Jimenez-Silva, Margarita; Merrit, Joi; Farr, Wendy J. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2017
Teachers need to be able to design and implement problem-based learning (PBL) experiences to help students master the content and the processes in new mathematics and science education standards. Due to the changed population of learners within schools, it is also critically important that teachers in the elementary grades have the abilities to…

Wijnen, Marit; Loyens, Sofie M. M.; Smeets, Guus; Kroeze, Maarten J.; Van der Molen, Henk T. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2017
A few years ago, the Erasmus School of Law implemented problem-based learning (PBL) as an instructional method in the bachelor's program. Transition to a PBL program often brings some difficulties for the teaching staff. To find out whether the implementation at the Erasmus School of Law has been successful, students and teachers were asked about…

Sipes, Shannon M. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2017
Few of the papers published in journals and conference proceedings on problem-based learning (PBL) are empirical studies, and most of these use self-report as the measure of PBL (Beddoes, Jesiek, & Borrego, 2010). The current study provides a theoretically derived matrix for coding and classifying PBL that was objectively applied to official…

Remijan, Kelly W. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2017
This article illustrates how mathematics teachers can develop design-focused projects, related to project-based learning, to motivate secondary mathematics students. With first-hand experience as a secondary mathematics teacher, I provide a series of steps related to the engineering design process, which are helpful to teachers in developing…
