Ulger, Kani – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
The problem-based learning (PBL) approach was implemented as a treatment for higher education visual arts students over one semester to examine its effect on the creative thinking and critical thinking disposition of these students. PBL had a significant effect on creative thinking, but critical thinking disposition was affected to a lesser…

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…

Valentine, Keri Duncan – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
With an increased push to integrate coding and computational literacy in K-12 learning environments, teacher educators will need to consider ways they might support preservice teachers (PSTs). This paper details a tinkering approach used to engage PSTs in thinking computationally as they worked with geometric concepts they will be expected to…

Marshall, Jill A.; Harron, Jason R. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
The maker movement has strong connections to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) as well as art and crafts, but the goals of making are not in perfect alignment with any of these disciplines. Within the problem-based paradigm, however, there is room to incorporate making as situated STEM learning, even in formal,…

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…

Cairns, Darran R.; Curtis, Reagan; Sierros, Konstantinos A.; Bolyard, Johnna J. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
There is currently significant interest in 3D fabrication in middle school classrooms. At its best 3D printing can be utilized in authentic design projects that integrate math, science, and technology, which facilitate deep learning by students. In essence, students are able to tinker in a virtual world using 3D design software and then tinker in…

Chan, Monica M.; Blikstein, Paulo – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
This is a research study of design and engineering classes that use a problem-based learning (PBL) approach in digital fabrication makerspaces in two middle schools. In these studies, teachers employ a PBL approach and provide an ill-structured problem scenario to facilitate design and engineering lessons in the FabLab (fabrication laboratory).…

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…
