PBCL in the Field: Instructor Insights

This video from Making Learning Real features instructors from two community colleges discussing Problem-Based Case Learning (PBCL). Teachers describe how the authentic nature of PBCL problems appeals to students and how PBCL classes are spontaneous and unpredictable. Instructors also reflect on the challenges teachers can face with PBCL, and one praises it for bringing new life to her teaching. The video runs 1:38 and is accompanied by a background essay and discussion questions. Users who sign up for a free account can save the resource and download the video as well.
