Context  Problem‐based learning (PBL) is widely used in higher education. There is evidence available that students and faculty are highly satisfied with PBL. Nevertheless, in educational practice problems are often encountered, such as tutors who are too directive, problems that are too well‐structured, and dysfunctional tutorial groups.

Do interprofessional education and problem‐based learning work together?
TLDR
The delivery of IPE through a PBL setting appears to hold good face validity, but there has to date been no published review of the evidence for the value of combining these two teaching methods.
The impact of programmatic assessment on student learning: theory versus practice
TLDR
‘Programmatic assessment’ is intended to optimise both learning functions and decision functions at the programme level of assessment, rather than according to individual methods of assessment.

Contemporary teaching practice is oriented towards the student who, through different forms of active learning, acquires appropriate competences which enable her/him to participate efficiently in
Effects of conventional and problem‐based learning on clinical and general competencies and career development
Objective  To test hypotheses regarding the longitudinal effects of problem‐based learning (PBL) and conventional learning relating to students’ appreciation of the curriculum, self‐assessment of
The Effects of Using Problem-Based Learning in Science and Technology Teaching upon Students' Academic Achievement and Levels of Structuring Concepts.
The present study aimed to investigate the impact of the problem-based learning method used in science and technology teaching upon elementary school students’ construction levels for the concepts
Using e-textbooks to support problem-based learning in science: Learning from the journey
TLDR
Through a series of Design Based Research cycles, over three years, the design of the e-textbooks was refined to create more effective problem-based learning environments for students.
Problem-Based Learning: a Time to Reflect and Remediate
Purpose: Problem Based Learning (PBL) has become a widely accepted learning method due to its student-centred philosophy and non-didactic nature. While there are recognized benefits of PBL, there is

Group problems in problem-based learning
TLDR
There is a need for further evidence on which to base guidelines for tutors and students to effectively manage group problems, and an exploratory model of PBL group dysfunction that could be used to guide further research.

TLDR
Evidence is presented that (a) cognitive research is not contrived and irrelevant, (b) curriculum level interventions are doomed to fail and (c) education needs more theory‐based research.

TLDR
It is recommended that caution be exercised in making comprehensive, curriculum‐wide conversions to PBL until more is learned about (1) the extent to which faculty should direct students throughout medical training, (2) PBL methods that are less costly, (3) cognitive‐processing weaknesses shown by PBL students, and (4) the apparent high resource utilization by P BL graduates.
