The problem based learning (PBL) approach combines both the development of the curriculum and instructional system that simultaneously develops both problem-solving strategies and disciplinary knowledge bases and skills
by placing students in the active role of problem-solvers confronted with an ill structured problem that mirrors real-world problems.”-- Dean Stover
PBL “empowers learners to conduct research, integrate theory and practice, and apply knowledge and skills to develop a viable solution to a defined problem” (Savery, 2006).
PBL is more effective at simulating higher-order thinking

than traditional learning methods
We asked Target, the 29th largest company in the Fortune 500, to present students with an authentic communication problem. They asked students: “How can we reach and communicate with the current generation of college students to find our future leaders?” To answer this question, student teams evaluated the company’s current campus recruitment strategy, benchmarked it against the competition, surveyed student opinions, conducted focus groups, and deliveredan oral presentation, accompanied by a written recommendation report, at the end of the semester.
"When students are presented with a case, they place themselves in the role of the decision maker as they read through the situation and identify the problem they are faced with. The next step is to perform the necessary analysis—examining the causes and considering alternative courses of actions to come to a set of recommendations."
