The Facilitate team have collated a range of resources to provide this bibliography. It draws on many sources but particularly on the excellent work of two members of the Facilitate steering committee: Roisin Donnelly (Dublin Institute of Technology) and Yvonne Delaney (University of Limerick). We are also grateful to The National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education for their continued financial support. The bibliography is divided into the following sections:
- Getting started with Enquiry and Problem Based learning
- Enquiry and Problem Based learning tutorials
- Enquiry and Problem Based learning websites and web-resources
- Feedback/Feed Forward – Interesting departures and timely reflections on Enquiry and Problem Based learning
We have designed this bibliography to be useful for those new to E/PBL as well as experienced practitioners. We value your feedback and suggestions for inclusion.
