This media asset is from Making Learning Real: "Framing a Situation for the Classroom."
This video from Making Learning Real on Problem-Based Case Learning (PBCL) shows how instructors and business partners work together to shape problems for students' PBCL projects. Educators and a business partner explain that, when forming a problem, the instructor must consider a timeframe, learning objectives, and resources. The business partner must consider the product he or she wants from the class.
In Problem-Based Case Learning (PBCL), students apply their knowledge to real-world problems. The PBCL process is a cycle that unfolds in nine stages. This video looks at Framing, the second stage.
In this stage, an instructor and a business partner work together to identify an actual business problem to pose to students. Factors like available resources, student skills, and the desired learning and professional outcomes are essential to the development of the problem.
Problems presented in PBCL classrooms have included making Web sites, drafting building designs, and forming networking plans. Each problem has aimed to satisfy the real needs of a business partner.
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.
