In October, we kicked off a new project which will focus on fostering the community of Problem-Based Learning (PBL) practitioners at Leeward Community College and Hawaii at large. We will answer the question, what does it mean to have quality PBL in your course? A team of faculty who have been practicing PBL for several years will look at scenarios, student learning outcomes and tasks, authentic assessment, and teamwork. For each topic, the team will develop standards/guidelines, best practices, key questions and resources. These will be combined to create overall PBL online site which has a collection of standards/guidelines, best practices, key questions, and resources.
