Abstract

This paper looks at the experiences of problem-based learning among groups of medical and education students in the University of Glasgow. PBL has been in use in the university in a number of different contexts for some time now, and this paper sets out to give those participating in professional education taught by this methodology a voice in assessing its effectiveness and in articulating their own experiences of it. Using qualitative methods, students were invited to respond to a range of issues. The results indicate acceptance for the methodology as an effective teaching medium, but indicate a range of differing perceptions both between the 2 groups and within the groups themselves.
