Learning: A Student-Centered Approach for Engagement (for
those new to PBL)
Watson, and Hal
White, University of Delaware
tenet of problem-based instruction (PBL) is that learning is initiated
by a posed problem that the student wants to solve. In the PBL approach,
complex, real-world problems motivate students to identify and research
concepts and principles they need to understand to progress from
ideas to solutions. Students work in small groups to acquire, communicate,
and integrate information in a process that resembles that of inquiry.
We will demonstrate PBL and model ways that it can be used effectively
for student engagement.
