Real world problem based learning and the use of simulations

Logo for Real world problem based learning and the use of simulations
Michael incorporates real problems from the business world into his courses. He contacts former students, potential and current employers to get these problems. In the interview Michael defines the characteristics of good problems for use in a course. He uses Facebook to maintain connections with graduates and invite former students to give guest lectures. Students work in teams sharing laptops within the classroom. They develop individual solutions that are then combined into a group solution.... More

This video is not an assessment tool. It looks like tape of a talk show called Innovations in Education. The host interviewed someone who used problem based learning in his classes. I think it would be difficult to watch the video in a classroom setting because a slider bar must be used to rewind and advance the video. Locating specific segments to show to a class would not be easy.The interview maybe used as an additional reference because the steps of how to use problem based learning were summarized at the bottom of the screen after the guest discussed them. However, they should have been listed altogether again at the end of the show for review. The interview was also unstructured in certain parts especially the discussion of incorporating social media in class websites. Some may find it distracting.
