Abstract

The focus of this study was the design, development and evaluation of online problem-based learning resources for use with postgraduate teachers studying through distance education at the University of Birmingham. Following their participation in online problem-based learning within two modules of a restructured programme, feedback from the students was collected and analysed.

The findings suggest that ‘traditional’ campus based learning and teaching approaches such as problem-based learning (PBL) can be adapted for use in professional training courses offered through distance learning. They also provide evidence that an appropriate induction programme, together with clear guidance on time management, as well as adequate tutor and technical support are important to enable students to overcome potential barriers to online learning and participation.

The broader implications of the findings for embedding e-learning within PBL for similar profiles of students are explored in a Final Project Report with recommendations made for future practice.
