Introduction
PhD in Computer Science at CIn - UFPE - Researching several PBL models and their variations (Problem-Based Learning, Chalenge Based Learning, Project Based Learning), their characteristics, processes and structures. In addition, it created a tool to support the planning of adopting the PBL approach for courses in the computing area (PBL Planner Toolkit). Participated in the design and formulation of the PBL methodology of CESAR School's undergraduate courses.

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, in a way to avoid those vital aspects to educational planning in the PBL approach that are neglected or forgotten. However...

Project
The PBL Framework is composed of three main pillars: 1) Process-based methodology (Rigor); 2) Information Technology to support this methodology (Efficiency); 3) PBL dissemination (Culture), which involves PBL practices and teacher training courses. Currently, this project involves four doctoral works, one master's work and one institutional work. The first work concerns the structuring of the framework in the format of the website; The second refers to a Canvas Toolkit for PBL planning; The third is an LMS system to manage PBL during the execution of a course; The fourth is a collaborative environment based on PBL, virtualizing the classroom; And the last one is the definition of a good practice guide for PBL. All of these works have been applied in undergraduate and graduate courses, including other PBL products developed by NEXT Research Group, such as the xPBL Methodology, the PBL-Test and the PBL-SEE (assessment model). The institutional project refers to the unification of the first year of three undergraduate courses in Computing (Computer Science, Computer Engineering and Information Systems) scheduled to start in 2017.
