As a a prelude to a posting on problem-based learning outside of educational institutions, I’d like to share some resources I found and collected using LiveBinders.
- represent a problem and/or divide it into sub-problems
- search for solutions
- implement solutions
Problem-based learning can be performed as a solo act but it’s typically enriched by team participation and multiple viewpoints.
Because of the time it takes for learners to engage in PBL, incorporating PBL into corporate training can be challenging. (I’m distinguishing PBL from scenario or simulation training which involves solving problems that are typically set out in a more structured way.) However, there are ways to implement PBL in corporate settings. More about this in the next post.
