Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses quality assurance in problem-based learning (PBL). Topics covered include programme evaluation, measuring quality, judging quality, and improving quality. The development of evaluation instruments is often taken lightly and regarded as ‘just putting some questions together’. The use of a theoretical framework as the basis for evaluation helps to establish the direction in which efforts to improve teaching should be headed. A theoretical framework therefore can stimulate continuous improvement of educational quality.
