Team Creation In A Problem-Based Learning Class
When using problem-based learning in class, one of the potential failures occurs when the teams do not have a full range of problem-solving skills. Since these teams are going to be dealing with complex and realistic problems, the teams must be created to ensure they have the potential to be high-performing teams. Otherwise, problem-based learning is like being in permanent white water (Vail,1989). When this doesn’t happen, the students become frustrated and struggle with the problem presented. This session introduces an assessment tool to assist in getting the right students on the problem-based learning bus and in the right seats.
