From Making Learning Real: "Resource Development"
The Problem-Based Case Learning (PBCL) process unfolds in nine stages. At first, a real business problem is identified and presented to students. Working in teams, students analyze the problem and conduct research.
In this sixth stage, Resource Development, students make sure the information they have is accurate and relevant, and they seek answers when they need to know more. Students then apply this information to hypothesizing and developing solutions.
In-depth communication with the business partner ensures that students clearly understand the partner’s needs, and that their proposed solutions match these needs. Approvals from the partner allow the students to move forward to the next stage in the PBCL cycle: Test Points.

- While PBCL originated in two-year colleges’ technical education programs, secondary schools have applied the methodology with success to a wide range of STEM content. How might your students benefit from working through the Resource Development stage?
