New Curriculum for New Times
A Guide to Student-Centered, Problem-based Learning



November 1996 | 200 pages | Corwin
Recent research on the learning process indicates that learning is facilitated by identifying and solving problems, when finding multiple approaches to problem-solving and when a problem has a 'real-world' significance. This book guides readers step-by-step through designing problem-based learning across the curriculum, and includes advice on managing and assessing student projects.
