- Problem-based learning has been widely applied in a number of professional curricula. Implementations indicate that problem-based learning is valid and effective in several domains; problem-solving ability and self-directed learning ability of the students are greatly enhanced in problem-based learning programs. From 2013, problem-based learning was applied in the course “Shape Design of Yacht” in Shandong Jiaotong University as a part of course reform in the discipline of naval architecture and marine engineering. Group work and self-directed learning are encouraged in class to resolve pre-set problems. Meanwhile, a 3-index assessment system established to match Problem-based learning. Results of our course evaluations show that 91% of the students found the new approach to be a helpful, useful, and interesting way in this course, nevertheless, some optimizations such as grouping method in problem-based learning still need be done in the future.
