Effective Teaching Approaches
One of the challenges in implementing a Puzzle-based Learning approach is taking a love of puzzles, or a desire to make students think in a more open-ended fashion, and making it work in a classroom environment. Many courses reward students for sitting quietly and, when prompted, answering a set of well-defined questions with rehearsed answers built from what their teacher has said. When we describe an effective teaching approach to support Puzzle-based Learning, we are not just talking about buying a book or finding some problems, we are talking about a complete change in the way that many of us think about working with our students.
