Problem-based learning (PBL) is an educational innovation for greater diversity and engagement in learning. PBL diversifies learning by catering for interdisciplinary knowledge application and multiple perspectives in problem solving. It also enhances engagement through more independent learning, peer learning and teamwork in problem solving with possibilities of future learning technologies. This collection on PBL and creativity provides another quantum leap by linking the quest for novelty, creativity and innovation with PBL. One of the key features of the PBL environment is immersion in a problem context. In this volume, we see how such immersion develops-not only problem-solving acumen-but also insights, intuition and inventive thinking. This volume captures examples and ideas of the interlink of PBL with creative ways of knowing, creative processes, creative learning environments and creative pedagogies.
Key features include:
First collection of its kind that brings together two important fields: the practice of problem-based learning and the applicability of creativity
PBL with an eclectic philosophy drawing on the best of various PBL models in real practice across disciplines and contexts
Creativity applied in the context of generative and divergent thinking, psychological and social contexts, and innovation learning environments
Edited by renowned international scholar on problem-based learning with perspective grounded in psychology and learning science
International contributions by scholars and practitioners in PBL across Asia, Europe, USA and Australia
