Summary

Problem-based learning is the most significant innovation in higher education and education for the professions in many years. Created by education professionals seeking alternatives to what they perceived to be indefensible teaching practices in higher education, it is a way of constructing and teaching courses using problems as the stimulus and focus for student activity.This book examines PBL both sympathetically and critically, points out the strengths and weaknesses of such a curriculum, and presents 30 case studies from a wide range of professional and higher education institutions.This second edition of The Challenge of Problem Based Learning looks at the topic in the light of changes since the first edition was published in 1991. These include completely new chapters as well as substantial revisions to many of the other chapters.
