Special Issue - PBL and Creative Processes

 

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.

Call for Papers – PBL and Creative Processes

 

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?
