PBCL in a Web Design Class

This video from Making Learning Real about Problem-Based Case Learning (PBCL) shows one class's PBCL experience from the start of class through mid-semester. A Web design instructor works with a small business development center to find a local business partner. The center matches the instructor with a clothing store owner. The instructor and the business owner formulate the problem: the business needs a Web site. Students meet several times with the owner and create web designs that she approves. The students then begin building the Web site. The video runs 0:40 and is accompanied by a background essay and discussion questions. Users who sign up for a free account can save the resource and download the video as well.
