Problem-based learning, or PBL, in its purest form, presents a fully-formed "real-world" problem to students at the outset of a course. Students then experiment and explore to solve the problem, with the instructor acting as a "guide" in the process, offering correction, focus, and assistance to guide inquiry. https://mankato.mnsu.edu/it-solutions/locations/instructional-design-academic-technology-services/mavlearn/teaching-strategies/
