A brand new open access journal has launched, The Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, has launched, and including this introductory article (as is typical in a volume 1 number 1) mapping out the terrain, vocabulary and range of the theory, solves that age-old problem: whether or not to use a hyphen in 'problem-based'. Overall, it's a pretty good article, covering the origins of problem-based learning (PBL) 30 years ago, characteristics of PBL, and contrasting it with project-based and case-based learning as well as inquiry-based learning.
