"The book is written in a lively, engaging, conversational style, without compromising on empirical rigour to substantiate its claims. ...All practitioners of problem based learning will benefit from the multipronged perspectives on pbl facilitation contained here." British Journal of Educational Technology Interest in problem-based learning continues to flourish worldwide. To date there has been relatively little to help staff examine the complex issues relating to facilitating problem-based learning and the ongoing development of staff, students and the curriculum. This book explores a broad range of issues about facilitation. It investigates understandings of facilitation that have emerged from the author's recent research and ways of equipping and supporting staff in terrestrial and virtual contexts. It also questions how students are assessed and suggests ways of preventing plagiarism in problem-based learning. This book examines what it means to be an effective facilitator and argues ways of designing problem-based curricula that enhance learning.
