For those who are interested in the word of problem-based case learning (PBCL) this site is quite a gem. PBCL is an educational approach that enables "educators to design scenario-based learning situations based on "real-time, real-world" problems and this approach helps instructors "minimize the barriers that typically separate the classroom from the real world." Created by a team of experts at Nashville State Community College and the WGBH Educational Foundation, the PBCL site features an impressive set of instructional videos featuring actual instructors, students, and business people in classroom situations. New users can start by looking over the "What is PBCL?" section, which includes a nice explanation of the PBCL cycle, a short video on why it works, and a brief description of PBCL basics. Moving on, the "PBCL in the Classroom" area contains several short videos on using PBCL in the classroom and developing business partnerships. The "Training & Community" section provides additional support for instructors, professional development and coaching programs, and a FAQ section. Here visitors will also find the "Resources & Tools" area, which contains a set of links to additional websites that will be helpful to those educators who seek to explore or implement PBCL. Additionally, the "Glossary" contains a listing of related terms with explanations, such as "contextual learning", "case-based learning", and "inquiry-based approach".
