This video excerpted from Making Learning Real introduces Problem-Based Case Learning (PBCL). With PBCL, the instructor works with an industry partner to bring a problem to the class. The students, with guidance from their teacher, proceed through cycles of research and testing before giving a final report back to the partner. The video features commentary from students, instructors, trainers, and one of the originators of the methodology, Dr. John Bransford, professor of education at the University of Washington School of Education. They introduce the approach and reflect on its value from their various perspectives.
