Problem-based learning (PBL) involves students working on problems in small groups of ten to twelve with the assistance of a tutor. Problems serve as the context for new learning. Their analysis and solution lead to the acquisition of new knowledge and problem-solving skills. Problems are encountered before all relevant knowledge has been acquired and not merely after reading texts or hearing lectures about the subject matter underlying a problem. This latter feature reflects one of the essential distinctions between PBL and other problem-oriented methods. For more Information please click here.
