From Making Learning Real: "Feedback & Evaluation: Guest Expert"
In the Problem-Based Case Learning (PBCL) process, the instructor and a business partner identify a real-world problem and present it to students. Students work through the nine stages of the PBCL process in teams. They analyze the problem, conduct field research, make revisions based on their research, form hypotheses about the solution, and finalize their decisions in preparation for sharing them with their instructor, business partner, and classmates.
After the students present their solution, they receive feedback from all of the participants. Others, like the guest instructor in this video, can be invited into the classroom to give feedback.
While working on PBCL projects, students learn professional skills, such as making presentations. In addition, students learn many aspects of working in teams and analyzing business problems.
- How does the guest instructor’s expertise in layout and design—and the host instructor’s choice to invite his critique—heighten the value of the students’ experience?
- 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. In addition to the business partner, whom could you invite to give feedback to students in your school setting?
