Subject: Problem-Based Methodology
Hello I visited this website after following Eleanor Duckworth's record of achievements. I first read her book some ten years ago and her ideas on learning have had a profound impact on my thinking. I have told hundreds of students about engaging in phenomena and explaining the sense etc. I am researching Problem-Based Methodology (Robinson, 1993) as an EdD student, and am synthesising Argyris & Schon, Duckworth, Brookfield, Bohm and others, in developing the concept of using learning conversations to engage in professional development. I wonder how long it will take to receive a reply?
