Consider the below diagram depicting paths through four years of undergraduate education: Undergraduate education is expected to be a transformational experience.

Methods This set of methods helps the teacher to work out what they can do in encouraging certain student behaviors. Many of these will already be in practice but, within the Puzzle-based Learning course, it is helpful to remember that we do not very often concentrate on the solving process as a domain-free activity. Most problem-solving is heavily situated into a given domain (SOH-CAH-TOA for Trigonometry and “I before E except after C” in English are two examples), and the notion of a “free-form” problem-solving methodology is often new to both teachers and students.

3 Icebreakers 25 • For all of the students that chose box B to get a sure 15 points, what is the minimum number of points offered for box B that would cause you to switch to box A? 8? 10? 12? 4 The following competition is announced in the class (it might be a good idea to offer a worthy price for the winner.
