Integrating Problem-Based Learning and Simulation

  1. 1. Integrating Problem-Based Learning and Simulation Enilda J. Romero, M.S. and Dr. Ginger S. Watson
  2. 2. Purpose Active Learner Participatory Problem-Based Learning Engage Simulation Eliminate minimal guidance Provide structure External representation Cooperative learning
  3. 3. Instructional Strategy Problem-Based Learning (PBL) What is a Problem? Problems Classification Structure Complexity Domain specificity
  4. 4. Problem Context, Rules and Principles Problem – Based Learning Model Problem Solving Process Instructor Support Solution and Reflection Increase of Knowledge Inventory
  5. 5. Albanese & Mitchell (1993) Berkson (1993) Current Effects of PBL Vernon & Blake (1993) Dochy et al. (2003)
  6. 6. Types of Simulations About something Physical Simulation SimCity Iterative Simulation CatLab
  7. 7. Types of Simulations How to do something Procedural Simulation FrogSim Situational Simulation Interactive Courtroom
  8. 8. Benefits of Instructional Simulation 1. Present content in ways that it would not be possible in real life 2. Environments in which learners can interact safely 3. Allow compression of time and convenience of multiple iterations 4. Allow learners to take on different roles 5. Facilitate for all levels of learner (novice or expert)
  9. 9. PBL Simulation PBL Simulation Present the problem Simulation Introduction Entry Point Problem context, principles Parameters and Rules and rules Framing the Problem Problem representation External representation Knowledge Inventory Problem solving process Start simulation iteration Research and Resources Instructor support Hints, tips and heuristics Teachable Moments Solution and Reflection Exit the simulation Wrap-up and Debriefing
