Paper Abstract

The college lecture dates to the middle ages when only the instructor had access to written material. In the 21st century, the lecturing professor persists but often finds him/herself talking to bored or distracted students. In this paper, an instructor's transition from "covering material" to facilitating learning is described. A summary of research is also presented that affirms the efficacy of problem-based learning (PBL).
