'This book makes a great shot at disentangling the challenge of the
diversity of learning technologies and their intricate association
with pedagogical approaches. The terms used by the book -
combining, uniting and interrelationships - in some ways underplay
the major challenges it poses. Have a good read of it - and most
importantly try out some ideas' - Gilly Salmon, Professor of
E-learning & Learning Technologies, Beyond Distance Research
Alliance. 'This [book] represents a significant collection of
papers which, I am sure, will help inform the development of an
online pedagogy for problem-based learning' - Michael Prosser,
Director Research and Evaluation, Higher Education Academy.'The
studies presented in this book are evidence informed and
theoretically framed in ways that promise to advance our
understanding of these complex areas. This collection will be an
invaluable read for anyone involved in PBL and/or e-learning in
higher education' - Glynis Cousin, Senior Adviser, Higher Education
Academy. "Problem-based Learning Online" is the first book to:
address the current issues and debates about problem-based learning
(PBL) online together in one volume; present and explore the range
and diversity of application of PBL online; and examine questions
such as how course design and issues of power influence learning in
PBL. The book provides research-based information about the
realities of setting up and running problem-based programmes using
technology in a variety of ways. It also captures the diversity of
use of technology with PBL across disciplines and countries,
providing vital input into the literature on the theory and
practice of PBL online.The contributors are: Chris Beaumont, Sian
