What Is Problem-Based Learning?

Problem based learning (PBL) is an instructional approach where students learn by solving challenging, open-ended problems. The problems are authentic tasks and are solved in socially and contextually based teams of students. The students rely on their current knowledge of the problem, identify “information they need to know to solve the problem, and the strategies they use to solve the problem” (Stanford University Newsletter on Teaching, 2001).
