Abstract

How effective is Problem-based Learning in an online environment? The Masters of Education in Educational Technology program serves mostly in-service teachers and courses taken in the program are seen as "just in time" professional development. However, Problem-Based Learning is a complicated strategy that requires students to take ownership of the problem. It is not clear whether when teachers engage in Problem-Based Learning in an online learning environment they achieve that ownership or they only go "through the motions" to obtain a grade. This investigation proposes some answers to such question with the aid of teachers' journals and products from an online course that uses Problem-Based Learning as one of the main strategies for teaching and learning.
