Problem based teaching (PBT)

  1. hi you all,
    Maybe you noticed (or not, LOL) that I haven't been posting quite a lot here lately, well, that is due to a very heavy work- and education-load. I am in the middle of a course for EBT and it is quite a lot of work, very interesting, but very time consuming.
    Especially since there is not much literature around in German, so I have to read and translate most of the background information from English and Dutch.

    My question to you: do you personally have experience with the pbt-methode?
    Is it better or worse then "normal" classroom teaching?
    When better, why?
    When worse, why?

    Please, prettiest please, give me some answers, so I can put experiences in my paper from people I know and trust.
    (When you allow me to use your answers of course)
    Thanks a lot, in advance, take care, Renee

    So, maybe it is not like a lot of papers and studies say, that every where in the USA and Canada, nursing is based on this kind of teaching.
    I was wondering about this anyway, but hey no answer is an answer too, isn' it!
    Take care, Renee

    Sorry, Renee, but I have not heard of this method (yet). Would like to hear more. By the way, thank you for your kind advice from my other post. I am feeling less overwhelmed. The first year of teaching really is rough!!!!
