In Problem-Based Case Learning (PBCL), student teams develop and present solutions to real-world problems. In this video from Making Learning Real, an instructor talks about using PBCL in his architectural design class where his students are tasked with the problem of designing a college wellness center. He describes a PBCL tool, the Need To Know Board (NTKB), as a "thought process board" and explains how students use the board to identify facts, assumptions, questions, and resources. The video then shows the students visiting an industry expert—a construction site superintendent—out in the field where they put their questions to him. Based on his answers and their field observations, the students move forward with developing a plan for the wellness center.
