Problem-based learning places the student at the centre of a process which integrates what is learned in a lecture with what the student actually experiences in practice. The authors of this book use their experience of designing and implementing such a course to offer detailed examples of strategies that work, and show how the approach can be adapted to individual curriculum needs. Including key chapters on facilitation, clinical practice, assessment and evaluation, Problem-Based Learning in a Health Sciences Curriculum will be inspiring reading for all those who want to explore and extend their teaching methods and motivate their students to acquire real knowledge with enjoyment.
