Problem-based Learning Clearinghouse

Problem-based Learning Clearinghouse

The Problem-Based Learning Clearinghouse is a repository of materials for instructors interested in using problem-based learning in their courses. It includes a collection of problems and articles to assist educators in using problem-based learning. The problems and articles are peer reviewed by PBL experts in the disciplinary content areas. Teaching notes and supplemental materials accompany each problem, providing insights and strategies that are innovative and classroom-tested. An opportunity to discuss problem-based learning is provided via a discussion forum. Access to the Clearinghouse collection is limited to educators who register via an online application, but is free and carries no obligation. Users may also register as Clearinghouse authors and contribute to the repository.

All problems are now available as Google Documents and can be copied, tweaked, translated, etc. Most of them have been assigned a Creative Commons Attribution Non Commercial (CC By NC) license as well.
