Abstract

In this chapter, we introduce problem-based learning (PBL). We begin by briefly discussing some of the theory behind the process and why it is used throughout the world in many university courses. How it works in practice is described at length, using an example of a short case to illustrate the process. The two main forms of PBL are described — short case and progressive release — and the use of virtual patient PBL is touched upon. Finally, common issues, or frequently asked questions, about PBL are discussed.
