There are new resources available to teachers looking to implement problem-based learning in their teaching.
Educational Technology and Mobile Learning just released a newly curated list of books that aim to show educators how to effectively apply problem-based learning (PBL) in teaching. PBL is a student centered and process-oriented approach. It puts a premium on the process leading to understanding. Its main objective is to prepare students for real world scenarios where they would have to deal with a variety of problems.
PBL is a critical tool for tutors because to help helps students stay engaged for a prolonged period of time. That type of deep interest is typically needed to have an effective tutoring session with a student.
The curated list of books include step by steps approaches, information on how to get started, and even example projects/lessons educators can use. They are all practical tools and provide real time methodologies you as an educator can implement today.
To learn more about the background of PBL check out Stanford’s ‘Speaking of Teaching” white paper on the topic.
