PBCL Stage 3: The Situation

PBCL Stage 3: The Situation

For Problem-Based Case Learning (PBCL), students work in teams to develop and present solutions to real-world problems. In this video from Making Learning Real, the instructor has partnered with a business owner who needs a networking plan for her new store. The business owner needs to know how the proposed networks will function and how she should use them. During the design process, students use the PBCL Need To Know Board (NTKB), which helps them identify what they already know and what they need to learn in order to continue their work. The video runs 2:02 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.
