Norman (1988) explains that teaching problem-solving skills is different from problem-based learning
, the purpose of which is to accumulate concepts in the context of a clinical problem.
The Center for Problem-Based Learning
at the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy was one of the early K-12 promoters of problem-based learning
is an educational method that differs from the traditional means of presenting knowledge in a lecture by providing students in small groups with a problem that acts as a trigger to stimulate development of their own learning goals.
Although limited implementations of problem-based learning
in specific components of teacher education courses have been reported (Gibson & Gibson, 1995; Ritchie, Norris, & Chestnutt, 1995), as yet, there appear to be no published instances of wider application of PBL to an entire teacher education course.
Course content demands are even more pressing when time-hungry techniques such as problem-based learning
are employed in the classroom.
It is notable that the highest scoring item was, "I would like to do more problem-based learning
," indicating that the students are interested in more exposure to the learning method.

How the design and implementation of problem-solving tools used in programming instruction are complementary with both the fundamental theories of problem-based learning
(PBL) and the pedagogy and practices of distributed education environments is examined.
How to use problem-based learning
in the classroom.
The aim of the workshop was to help the educators develop the skill to write effective cases, trigger problem-based learning
packages to support learning and conduct PBL session for undergraduate medical curriculum.
Such forms of learning are characterized by disciplinary integration, experiential learning, and problem-based learning
