Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We piloted an online PBL case method. Two student groups shared a common online facilitator and contributed to an online document. Students reported improved group interaction and participation vs. conventional PBL. Peer feedback was more accurate and specific. The method is promising for training students in virtual communication strategies.
