In this video from Making Learning Real, practitioners and developers of Problem-Based Case Learning (PBCL) explain how the PBCL approach helps students take a hands-on approach to learning and apply their studies to real-world professional scenarios. Because PBCL problems are open-ended, teachers and students must adjust to unexpected situations as students create multiple, equally valid solutions. The PBCL approach includes feedback, reviews, and revisions. This approach brings a meaningful, professional experience into the classroom, such that one PBCL developer says it enables PBCL students to outperform non-PBCL students on job-related problems.
