    Is anyone using PBL in a higher education classroom? I teach an educational technology course to pre-service teachers and I exclusively use the PBL model for the course. It takes a while for the students to get use to the lecture-less-classroom, but after that they really seem to enjoy it and learn a ton. I would love to connect with other educators in university settings who use a PBL model.

Here is a screenshot of one of my student's blog posts where I asked them to write step-by-step directions telling how to do something. I have provided more details about this process in the link along with

    Does anyone have any suggestions for any books or articles that might help some of my teachers on where to being with pbl or even a simple inquiry project? They are interested but not sure where to begin.
    • Jeff Schneider - I learned PBL from the PAST Foundation ( I now work for the South Dakota Innovation Lab teaching high school science and teaching PBL to teachers.
      I would be glad to help you brainstorm some ideas. We have a few ready to go that we use at workshops.

    • Dr. Hollatz - I agree with Joy above. The Buck Institute is a great resource. I use it in my educational technology course with my pre-service teachers!

    Has anyone used SCRUM in an educational setting?

    Any PBL suggestions for a unit that would replace reading The Crucible in class? I would like to have a unit that is thematically relevant, we would still study examples of mass hysteria such as the Salem Witch Trials and McCarthyism, analyze causes and outcomes. More PBL style, though, so the kids would have more of a stake in it. Thank you.

At its core, PBL is focused on important knowledge and concepts derived from standards, and skills valuable for today's world, such as critical thinking, collaboration, and communication.
