Simple Staged Problem for Introduction of PBL Process

Length: 1 Hour or Less

Discipline: Faculty Development

Level: Introductory (professors and teachers)

Author: Watson, George

“For faculty development sessions there is often a need for a simple, staged problem that does not require investigation using additional resources. Limited workshop time or limited immediate access to Internet resources constrains the complexity of the ‘Experience It Yourself’ problem that is the customary starting point for PBL training facilitated by the University of Delaware.
This problem begins with a conversation between two individuals regarding international travel, staged to guide the participants to consider concerns associated with solo travel to another country.”
