Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This paper examines five problem-based learning (PBL) cases and how they have been developed as reusable learning objects for the field of teacher-education. The first part of the paper examines the importance of problem-based learning for higher education. The second part of the paper examines the concept of learning objects and the wide ranging views on its definition. This paper further explores five cases that have been designed to complement teaching in a variety of content areas. In addition the importance of providing media-rich, immersive problem-based learning cases particularly in the early stages of student exposure to problem-based learning is also explored.
