Interest in problem-based learning continues to flourish worldwide;

however, there have been relatively few resources to help

readers examine the complex issues relating to facilitating its implementation

of problem-based learning and the ongoing development

of staff, students and the curriculum.

Facilitating Problem-Based Learning explores a broad range of

issues about facilitation, in particular: understandings of facilitation

that have emerged from the author’s recent re-search and

ways of equipping and supporting staff in terrestrial and virtual

contexts. It also questions how students are assessed and suggests

ways of preventing plagiarism in problem-based learning.
