This study aims to analyze the implementation of problem-based learning (PBL) in engineering education regarding perceptions and actions of tutors and students. A case study design was employed in this study. To this end, four tutors, their five PBL modules, and fourteen students were selected. Observations and interviews were used to collect qualitative data. The results indicated that there was a difference between participants’ perception of PBL and their actions during tutorials. Participants’ level of adaptation to PBL and problems they faced were indicated as the reasons of this difference. Analyzing the implementation of PBL and taking the ideas of students and tutors who are the basic components of it seems to be of fundamental importance to contribute future implementations.

An assessment of the effects of teaching methods on academic performance of students in accounting courses
Hosal-Akman, Nazli; Simga-Mugan, Can (2010-01-01)
This study explores the effect of teaching methods on the academic performance of students in accounting courses. The study was carried out over two semesters at a well-known university in Turkey in principles of financial accounting and managerial accounting courses. Students enrolled in the courses were assigned to treatment and control groups. Treatment group students solved assigned problems or cases in groups in class, while in the control group the instructor lectured on and solved the problems and ca...
Investigating questioning patterns of teachers through their pedagogical progression in argument-based inquiry classrooms
Kılıç, Burcu; Çakıroğlu, Jale; Günel, Murat; Department of Elementary Science and Mathematics Education (2016)
The purpose of this study is to delineate the characteristics of teacher questioning in different implementation qualities of Argument-Based Inquiry (ABI) teaching. With this purpose, first, the characteristics of teacher question types used in high quality ABI classrooms were described, and teacher questions used in high quality practices were distinguished from those posed in medium quality classrooms. Secondly, the study aimed to characterize the sequence of teacher question types that promote high cogni...
