Abstract

Problem-Based Learning (PBL) is an educational approach that organizes curriculum and instruction around "ill structured" problems. Students gather and apply knowledge from multiple disciplines in their quest for solutions. Guided by teachers trained as cognitive coaches, students:

  • develop critical thinking skills
  • use problem solving skills
  • practice collaborative skills
  • formulate hypotheses
  • conduct data searches
  • perform experiments
  • generate solutions
  • determine the best solution
