Problem Based Learning: Strategies, Struggles and Successes Seeking participants for a round-table discussion at NeMLA on PBL. Problem Based Learning (PBL) devises challenging, open-ended problems for students to solve collaboratively. How do we define and configure PBL, which originated in the sciences, for classes in the humanities? This round-table session invites participants to share strategies, struggles and successes using PBL in literature classes.

NeMLA will be in New Brunswick, NJ from April 7-10, 2011.
