The Institute for Transforming Undergraduate Education at the University of Delaware is focused on offering a range of ways to make undergraduate education more of an experiential-based process. Part of their work deals with problem-based learning (PBL) which asks students to "engage complex, challenging problems and collaboratively work toward their resolution." While some of the resources here are intended for use specifically at the University of Delaware, many of them can be used at colleges anywhere. First-time visitors can click on the "Resources" area to get started. Here they will find sample syllabi from courses based around PBL, sample problems, evaluation forms, and videos that help illustrate how instructors can use these materials. The sample problems include materials like "Hot-Headed Moles in Antarctica" and "The Geritol Solution". Finally, visitors can click on the "Partners" link where they'll find the PBL Clearinghouse, which is a collection of problems and articles to assist educators in using PBL. Access to the clearinghouse is free, but is limited to educators who must fill out a short online application.
