Abstract

The objective of this research project into teacher education was to document the collaborative development and refection on teachers' tools in a problem-based learning (PBL) program. These results were then used to design materials and formats for the transmission of this teaching knowledge to less-experienced PBL teachers. The tools were developed using a problem-based model of teacher learning, informed by recent cognitive research into teacher education (Bickel & Hattrup, 1995; Bruer, 1993; Keefer, 2001; Krajcik, Blumenfield, Marx, & Soloway, 1994; Marx, Blumenfield, Krajcik, & Soloway, 1998). They consist of a set of materials, including case examples and exemplars, refections on cases, and scoring guides anchored to the video examples and presented in Web-based and CD-ROM formats. (Contains 2 tables and 4 figures.)
