The book is aimed at teachers and researchers from a variety of disciplines, as well as developers, trainers and experts on working life interested in the pedagogical development of their practices. The articles examine PBL implementation across a range of subjects including psychology, early childhood education, physics, engineering, medicine and nursing. The fields are varied, but the main ideas and principles are similar: What is a good problem? How to design different problems for different purposes? How can teachers develop themselves as tutors? How can tutors learn to facilitate student groups and lead group processes? How to solve the dilemma of assessment and evaluation in PBL pedagogy? How is the PBL curriculum different compared with conventional curricula? The questions are numerous.
The aim of the book is to offer some answers to these questions and to stimulate new ones. This is the way PBL works!
