PBL Planner Toolkit: A Canvas-based Tool for Planning PBL in Software Engineering Education

Gustavo H.S. Alexandre, Simone C. Santos

Abstract

The PBL (Problem-Based Learning) methodology provides many benefits to those who use it in teaching. In this light, it is important to plan well when using this methodology, efficient to the purposes established by an educator. However, there is a lack of specific tools to help educators in the task of planning their teaching, specifically geared to the PBL approach. As a solution to this problem, this paper proposes a tool consisting of a Canvas PBL and a set of cards intended to guide the planning of teaching in the PBL approach. Initial results indicate a good level of acceptance of the tool, as well as indicators of its utility in planning and adopting PBL, as shown by the data collected from the application of a survey that evaluated the use of our Toolkit.
