Developing a PBL course in Economics: a sceptic's diary

Judith Piggott, Oxford Brookes University
Body: 
We have found one brave soul who has agreed to develop a second year module using Problem-Based Learning and write a diary of her experiences to be featured here. In return for this we will part-fund her attendance at an introductory PBL workshop in Maastricht. We hope that her regular accounts will encourage debate across the community on the use of newer teaching methods

This assignment was set for a one term module on International Trade (2nd and 3rd year undergraduate students, mainly in Economics but some in European Business). The idea was to set the students a task which could be seen as relevant to their studies but also relevant to what was going on around them - the "real world".
