In this video from Making Learning Real about Problem-Based Case Learning (PBCL), an instructor and a business partner have posed a business problem to an HTML class. The business partner is a local community service organization, Feline Hotline. The problem is that Feline Hotline needs a Web site. Student teams present their solutions to the instructor, the business partner, and a guest expert (a Web design instructor). The students then receive feedback on their work.
Problem-Based Case Learning (PBCL) asks instructors and business partners to provide students with a real-world business problem. Typically, students then work in teams to develop solutions. As part of this teamwork, students present solutions to the instructor and partner and get feedback from them. This process may then be rerun.
For example, in an architectural design class, one team received negative feedback on their proposal from their business partner. In response, the student team reran the PBCL process to improve their design. Teamwork, presentations, and feedback combined to give students direct, professional experience.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
