Abstract

The purpose of this design research is to find ways of enhancing college students' ill-structured problem solving skills in a teacher education course. Based on the ill-structured problem solving process, a Web-based, case-based learning environment was developed and implemented. Students were asked to solve case problems on classroom management while being exposed to multiple perspectives, a variety of solutions, and literature relevant to the given problems. A field experimental time-series single-group design was employed to test the effects of the environment. The results revealed that this environment was effective in improving students' ill-structured problem solving skills at a certain level; however, the average scores of the students' performance indicated that there is much room for improvement in the sub-skills of ill-structured problem solving.
