|Title||Virtual Problem Based Learning - A needs assessment exploring on-line PBL group learning|
UBC has a distributed model of medical education with multiple sites. Currently students participate in problem-based learning (PBL) groups at their respective sites with local tutors. This limits student’s exposure to their colleagues and to a wider variety of tutors available throughout the medical school. Recommendations from the Task Force on Undergraduate MD Curriculum Renewal include the adoption of improved flexibility in undergraduate medical education, This project is a needs assessment of students and faculty exploring the possible use of on-line PBL.
Virtual PBL could allow for:
Based on Kern’s model of curriculum development, the first phase of curriculum development is problem identification and needs assessment. This is the needs assessment of students and faculty exploring the use of virtual PBL learning.
