Problem Based Learning

Last week I had my first try at implementing Problem Based Learning (PBL) in physics. We were about to study Heat Energy and it seemed like a natural fit for presenting an authentic problem. I chose to make a scenario that was based on my previous work as a mechanical engineer. Have a look below… PBL - Heat Energy From what I understand, PBL should be based on authentic situations where the solution is non-obvious such that the students need to engage their meta-cognition.
