Problem-based learning is a powerful classroom process, which uses real world problems to motivate students to identify and apply research concepts and information, work collaboratively and communicate effectively. It is a strategy that promotes life-long habits of learning. The University of Delaware is recognized internationally as a center of excellence in the use and development of PBL. This book presents the cumulative knowledge and practical experience acquired over nearly a decade of integrating PBL in courses in a wide range of disciplines. This "how to" book for college and university faculty. It focuses on the practical questions which anyone wishing to embark on PBL will want to know: "Where do I start?" "How do you find problems?" "What do I need to know about managing groups?" "How do you grade in a PBL course?" The book opens by outlining how the PBL program was developed at the University of Delaware -- covering such issues as faculty mentoring and institutional support -- to offer a model for implementation for other institutions. The authors then address the practical questions involved in course transformation and planning for effective problem-based instruction, including writing problems, using the Internet, strategies for using groups, the use of peer tutors and assessment. They conclude with case studies from a variety of disciplines, including biochemistry, pre-law, physics, nursing, chemistry, political science and teacher education This introduction for faculty, department chairs and faculty developers will assist them to successfully harness this powerful process to improve learning outcomes.
