Problem-based learning (PBL) is an educational strategy that provides learners with the opportunity to investigate and solve realistic problem situations.1 It is also referred to as project-based learning or work-based learning. PBL combines several learning strategies including the use of case studies coupled with collaborative, facilitated, and self-directed learning. Research has demonstrated that use of PBL can result in learners having improved problem-solving skills, increased breadth and analysis of complex data, higher-level thinking skills, and improved collaboration.2-4 This article will include background information and a description of PBL, followed by examples of how this strategy can be used for learning in neonatal settings.
