• Integrating Academic and Artistic Methodologies within a PBL-environment

    04-01-2017

    This is a call for papers for a special issue on “Integrating Academic and Artistic Methodologies within a PBL-environment” to appear in Journal of Problem Based Learning in Higher Education (JPBLHE). The special issue is edited by Elizabeth Juchum, Falk Heinrich and Morrten Søndergaard.

    Abstracts due 1 May 2017 · Papers due 1 September 2017

    The themes that we suggest for this special issue are:

    • Can we envision an integration of academic and artistic methods that fosters an innovative methodology, or are academic and artistic methodologies fundamentally incompatible?
    • Do artistic methodologies supplement, broaden, or work against the tenets of the PBL approach?
    • Does PBL have a theoretical base through which we might conceptualize the integration of artistic and academic methodologies, for example, by allowing for different degrees or modes of integration?
    • What are the challenges or trade-offs of combining artistic and academic methodologies? What is gained and what is lost when we move across disciplinary boundaries?
    • How are artistic and academic methodologies defined historically, and which new perspectives and discourses make integration possible?
    • How can the integration of artistic and academic methods be realized in concrete teaching practices within an PBL environment?

  • Special Issue - PBL and Creative Processes

    11-09-2015

    Problem Based Learning (PBL) is a pedagogical approach that encourages those who take part in its processes to act both as supportive change agents working in collaboration with colleagues, and also as individuals to use their creativity in finding solutions to practical problems. The process of questioning the issues and finding novel solutions using the creative spirit are also challenging for those who teach and deliver PBL based curriculum, and poses some fundamental questions.

    25-10-2013

    This is a call for papers for a special issue on “PBL and creative processes” to appear in Journal of Problem Based Learning in Higher Education (JPBLHE). The special issue is edited by Ole Verner Pihl and Andrew Armitage.

    The themes that we suggest for this special issue are:

    • Design processes and PBL - flow and conflict
    • Intuition and innovation – its role and relationship to PBL
    • The design processes - individual versus collective/consensus lead processes
    • Experiments and method – PBL in action
    • Space, form, materiality and pedagogy – how can we deliver PBL more creatively?
    • The work of the genius and lonely designer versus the collective
    • Limitations and freedom of expression within the PBL paradigm/process
    • A theoretical and philosophical critic of the ruling PBL pedagogical paradigm
    • A critique of PBL as a pedagogical model – why is there a reluctance of Higher Education Institutions to adopt this approach?
