Problem-based Learning Evaluation Toolkit
The PBL Evaluation Toolkit emerged out of a presentation assessing the current literature related to the evaluation of Problem-based Learning (PBL). Findings indicated that there was a lack of robust studies which could support this method. The PBL Special Interest Group met and, with support from the Health Sciences and Practice Subject Centre, developed a toolkit, which it is hoped will encourage potential researchers to evaluate PBL. Areas considered include curriculum design, facilitation, student experience, and effectiveness of learning. By evaluating these areas of PBL through research, it is hoped a body of knowledge will emerge in order that future stakeholders can make informed decisions about choices relating to use of PBL in pedagogy.
