Problem-Based Learning in Public Administration: Teaching Ethics Online
Author: THOMAS D. LYNCH and CYNTHIA E. LYNCH
Published in GVER, Vol. 4 No. 3
This article describes Problem-Based Learning (PBL) as a teaching
technique for web based courses. New research in cognitive development
suggests that our current methods of teaching abstract concepts, such as
those found in ethics courses in Public Administration, can be improved upon
greatly. Though it is not a panacea for all the challenges of ethics education,
PBL requires the learner to participate in a number of exercises that forces
them to construct the concept in multiple dimensions. This new educational
tool helps professors engage both the hearts and minds of students so that
ethics education becomes a part of their new professional lives.
