9780335203383: Problem-based Learning in Higher Education: Untold Stories (Society for Research into Higher Education)

Problem-based learning is becoming increasingly popular in higher education because it is seen to take account of pedagogical and social trends (such as flexibility, adaptability, problem-solving and critique) in ways which many traditional methods of learning do not. There is little known about what actually occurs inside problem-based curricula in terms of staff and student "lived experience". This book discloses ways in which learners and teachers manage complex and diverse learning in the context of their lives in a fragile and often incoherent world. These are the untold stories. The central argument of the book is that the potential and influence of problem-based learning is yet to be realized personally, pedagogically and professionally in the context of higher education. It explores both the theory and the practice of problem-based learning and considers the implications of implementing problem-based learning organizationally.
