Musings on completing a PBL MOOC about PBL (problem-based learning)

The eLearning Nomad

Early December I completed the MOOC ‘Problem-Based Learning: Principles and Design’ organised by Maastricht University: a course where participants “learn about PBL by doing PBL”. It talks about problem-based learning (PBL) as well as the PBL MOOC and MOOCs in general. PBL at universities is generally more focused on ‘talking about’ the problem and ‘reading about’ the problem (long lists of references to academic papers that also talk about the problem), rather than solving the problem and tapping into people’s real-life experience and insights.

The problem with pre-work

Clive on Learning

Yes, because the biggest problem is calling it 'pre-work' in the first place. Don't start with the idea that asynchronous activities are boring or you'll end up with a self-fulfilling prophesy. Time and again, trainers tell me that they have trouble getting trainees to complete their 'pre-work'. It seems that, if there's a time and date attached to an activity, then trainees will turn up and get involved, but if any sort of personal time management is required, then you can forget it. So is the concept of pre-work doomed? Well, yes and no. Other activities are optional extras.

Three essential components of participatory e-learning

The eLearning Nomad

Problem-based learning provides such a framework. In the process of solving real-life problems, people tend to move away from the easy ‘talking about’ and ‘do’ something instead. And during or after the process of problem solving, it becomes more natural to step back and engage in some meta-thinking and reflection. The term is mostly used in politics and training/education jargons. Give enough time.
