Problem Based Learning Workshop

Southern Illinois University School of Medicine
Springfield, IL
June 16-19, 2009

Essentials of Problem-Based Learning:
Facilitator Training, Curriculum Design, Problem Construction and Student Assessment

This workshop combines training in the essential faculty skills for problem-based learning, including how to design a problem-based curriculum and draft the problems central to it, how to facilitate small groups and how to assess students. By interweaving the skills sessions, participants will be able to develop their facilitating skills while tutoring the problems they are developing for their own curriculum. We anticipate that participants will have the same wide range of academic disciplines, educational focus and cultural background as we have had in other workshops, making for an exciting sharing of problem-development ideas and institutional challenges.
