GARCIA-MARTIN, Laura et al. Survey-based assessment of a workshop conducted in several Spanish cities on problem-based learning. FEM (Ed. impresa) [online]. 2014, vol.17, n.3, pp.151-160. ISSN 2014-9840.

Introduction. In an attempt to promote problem-based learning (PBL), the Esteve Foundation organized several seminars for various teaching professionals in a number of Spanish cities. This study presents the experience gained in four years of running these courses (2008-2011), which were offered in collaboration with other institutions. Subjects and methods. Data were analyzed from 11 PBL courses involving 216 professionals. Firstly, satisfaction data were taken from a printed survey conducted at the end of each course. Secondly, additional data were obtained from a deferred opinion questionnaire sent by email several months after the course. Results. Satisfaction data for 194 attendees who completed the first questionnaire (response rate of 90%) were very positive (median: 4 out of 5). Only 54 attendees (response rate of 25%) responded to the deferred questionnaire. Participants improved their knowledge, attitude, and skills (median increase: 3 out of 5) in most of the parameters evaluated. Furthermore, after completion of the course, 39% of the attendees reported that they were able to implement PBL in some of their teaching activities. Conclusions. The courses were well received and contributed to the overall learning of the attendees. The questionnaires served to highlight some of the major problems in the implementation of PBL.
