>Learning (IJPBL), edited by Peggy A. Ertmer, Associate Professor of
>Educational Technology, and Alexius Smith Macklin, Associate Professor of

>published, peer-reviewed journal seeks to challenge, stimulate, and
>provoke additional research in the area of problem-based learning (PBL).
>IJPBL offers a forum for problem-based learning research across
>disciplines. This scholarly journal publishes the most relevant
>information about problem-based learning pedagogy and is the first of its
>kind in this exciting field. Articles inside IJPBL offer readers
>instruction and insights into the best new teaching and learning practices
>in a variety of disciplines. IJPBL is filled with challenging and
>practical research that may be used by educators in numerous disciplines
>to implement problem-based learning in their own classrooms. IJPBL will
>also be of great help to all those who wish to use problem-based learning
>more effectively in their K-12 and post-secondary classrooms.
>IJPBL is published quarterly by Purdue University Press in both a
>paperback and online version. Additionally, the premier addition may be
