How well is authentic problem-based learning (APBL) understood by its facilitators? How ready are teachers in implementing APBL in the classroom? Written based on the APBL approach, Jump Start Authentic Problem-Based Learning serves as a comprehensive, practical and easy-to-understand handbook to equip teachers to become competent and confident in APBL.
At the outset of each chapter, readers are presented with real, high-impact and frequently occurring teaching problems that they will encounter when implementing APBL. Through the use of the APBL process and templates, they are taught to manage these problems. The book also showcases APBL in action. Teachers who have adopted APBL as an alternative to the traditional lecture-tutorial approach share their APBL implementation experiences in their testimonials. In addition, the tried-and-tested templates at the end of each problem-based chapter serve as an effective resource to help teachers jump start their APBL works.
