The Destination: Problem-Based Learning (DPBL) project at the Experiential Learning Center at Truckee Meadows Community College advocates for and supports problem-based learning in STEM classrooms nationally. We develop tools for faculty creating and assessing PBL scenarios and tasks for their classrooms and sponsor a Library of Scenarios and Tasks. We work with our PBL and ATE allies to develop professional development opportunities including the SC ATE National Resource Center‘s Roots and Wings Instructional Leadership Institute in Charleston SC, Leeward Community College’s Pacific Region Learning Summit (PRLS) May 13-17th, and the Mid Pacific ICT Center’s Summer Faculty Professional Development Continue reading
In need of a scenario to use in your class this term? Or seeking a model task to copy for your classroom? Our collection of scenarios is available for your educational use. Visit Scenarios-> Completed and Pending on this website. You can search or browse through the tables.

Please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you are using our tools (what class, where, who you are) and how it goes. Suggestions for improvements are also welcome, of course.
On Friday, Feb 17, 2012, as part of Leeward CC professional development series, there will be a session on Effective Student Projects. Three of the four presenters asked to share effective student projects assigned in college classes that engage students and promote learning are instructors using Problem-Based Learning. They attended the Transforming Instruction with Problem-Based Learning training and have implemented PBL in their courses. As a result of PBL, they have examples of effective student projects/work which they will be sharing with their colleagues. This puts a spotlight on the great work being done with PBL.
