Summary "This volume... provides information about theories and practices associated with problem-based learning (PBL). Partially because of changes in the Information Age that are transforming the nature of knowledge and the types of problems that people face, professors are adopting PBL to facilitate a broader and more up-to-date role of what it means 'to learn.' Professors, however, will encounter their own set of problems when designing and implementing a problem-based curriculum. Not unlike PBL assignments to their students, the issues and obstacles professors will encounter require practical solutions"--From book jacket
