Barriers to PBL by Mind Map: Barriers to PBL

1. Can take longer than traditional teaching methods - difficult in post registration environment when balancing clinical work with teaching time

1.1. True but teaching hospitals must remember the value of post registration learning and MDT training.

2. Learning is not as structured - more difficult to catch up if a session is missed?

2.1. Yes potentially, but the session and outcomes are still planned with any teaching therefore teacher can send intended learning outcomes and that sessions subject matter to the student.

3. Group dynamics can be difficult to manage. Do loud characters or very characters end up disadvantaging each others learning?

3.1. This links back to the role of the facilitator and the importance of developing good facilitation skills to avoid this. However, it is not always possible to manage multiple groups at the same time.

4. Does PBL make assessment of progress more difficult?

4.1. Assessment of progress may be more difficult, however final assessments may still follow the same format. Facilitators can develop appropriate assessment methods to be gauge intermediate student progress.

5. Staff may not have received adequate training in how to facilitate effective PBL? How is this measured?

5.1. This is difficult and facilitator skills will develop with experience therefore teachers should not shy away from this method of teaching.
