PBCL: Thinking About Evaluation

PBCL: Thinking About Evaluation

With 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, instructors and a learning scientist discuss ways to evaluate student work in PBCL. One challenge for education is to find a way to evaluate that does not stifle innovation. Another is the need to evaluate how students solve new problems they have never seen before. The solutions that students develop can indicate how well they have learned the material. The video runs 2:04 and is accompanied by a background essay and discussion questions.
