Problem-Based Learning in Health and Social Care offers a practical insight into the opportunities, benefits and challenges of using problem-based learning (PBL) in health and social care education and also student-directed learning (SDL) as a learning and teaching tool. It presents a collection of practical and emerging concepts in terms of how to do PBL and SDL and considers the practical barriers and solutions, challenges to self awareness and finally future potentialities and directions for learning. The book contextualises and summarises the development of PBL and uses the analogy of a journey to ‘travel’ the reader through the book, covering such key topics as developing PBL curricula, becoming a tutor facilitator, SDL, reflection, assessing and evaluating PBL, group skills and team working. It offers practical guidance on how courses, individual staff and students can develop skills and tactics to understand PBL and SDL and thus achieve effective delivery and learning experiences.
