Problem-based learning. No problem!
In the last issue of Pédagogie collégiale, an article by Mélanie Pagé “When a problem becomes fantastic: A report of an experiment in problem-based learning (PBL) during a course in literature” demonstrated the effectiveness of PBL in teaching literature. The process implemented by Ms. Pagé was taken from the PBL guide written by Ms. Lise Ouellet, coordinator of the Service du développement pédagogique et institutionnel and Mr. Jacques Brosseau, educational advisor, both from Cégep de Sainte-Foy. The guide, which is outlined briefly in this article, was developed thanks to a grant from Regroupement des colleges PERFORMA.
The Centre de documentation collégiale (CDC) offers an extensive collection of documents on college-level education and on education in general, produced by professionals in leading facilities and organizations.
