Problem Based Learning in Health and Social Care

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.

Student Voice, Teacher Action Research and Classroom Improvement

The issue of teacher quality is increasingly seen as being central to education policy development and this emphasis highlights the role teacher professional development plays in improving teacher effectiveness and the quality of learning in the classroom. This book describes a large-scale research program which investigated the feasibility of using student perceptual measures as the basis for teacher development and classroom improvement. The book describes how teachers’ use of the student feedback, as part of an action-research process, was used to guide improvements to their respective classrooms which in turn provided them with increased opportunities for teacher development and growth. In addition to this, it reports the efforts of one school which purposefully linked the involvement of their teachers to their school improvement initiatives. This book would be of interest to a range of audiences including researchers, teachers and school leaders. Its attractions include its far-reaching implications for educational systems concerning the ways in which student feedback can be used to facilitate teacher development and growth. The book also reports the use of a multi-method research design in which quantitative and qualitative methods were successfully employed simultaneously within two concurrent and interrelated investigations.
