Problem Based Learning in Health and Social Care
February 2010, Wiley-Blackwell
The book contextualises and summarises the development of PBL and uses the analogy of a journey to ‘travel’ the reader through the book, covering such key topics as developing PBL curricula, becoming a tutor facilitator, SDL, reflection, assessing and evaluating PBL, group skills and team working. It offers practical guidance on how courses, individual staff and students can develop skills and tactics to understand PBL and SDL and thus achieve effective delivery and learning experiences.
