I was in a Problem Based Learning(PBL) session at NISOD 2014 this morning. While discussing PBL, I was looking for some samples or handouts that I could share with Circles and I came upon the Sherlock Journal. I thought it was a clever way of assigning specific tasks in group work. Essentially, there are different roles for students (Discussed Below). To see the full handout, click here. I also found a cool link to a lunar outpost PBL assignment from the PBL Network.
Here are the Different Roles
1. DaVinci — the illustrator draws or finds a picture to represent the learning
2. Webster — the lexicographer defines the key concepts
3. Sherlock — the inquisitor develops a list of questions
4. Katie Couric – the summarizer develops a summary of the teams findings.
