Essential Readings in Problem-Based Learning represents an ambitious goal to include influential articles and chapters regarding the theories and research central to ill-structured problem solving. The book is unique because it goes beyond being a traditional handbook of research by also including previously written articles germane to foundations of problem- based learning (PBL). In doing so, the chapters provide an overview of the current debates in light of established writings. Collectively, the book serves as a great resource by synthesizing various articles relevant to learning theories, practical instructional strategies, and research.
