Abstract

Students working in PBL must be responsible for their own learning and for what they will actually do in their research. Throughout the PBL process, students have to define and analyse the problem, generate learning issues, and apply what they have learned to solve the problem. Instead of working as individuals in the class, students in PBL work as a team and they have to share their knowledge with others. This means that students who are used to traditional methods of learning do not necessarily have the required skills to cope with the different roles expected of them in PBL. This chapter begins with a brief review of the differences between conventional leaning and PBL. Subsequent sections of the chapter describe several important issues that are needed to prepare students for PBL.
