In order to help our readers to have a better understanding of the PBL process, we feel that it is important first to understand something about traditional methods of learning and cognitive learning. Since the focus of PBL is to help students to learn better, an understanding of learning itself would give a better perspective of the process in PBL. This chapter will look at traditional approaches in learning and compare them with cognitive learning. This is followed by constructivist learning, a type of cognitive learning. Several models of constructivist learning are briefly reviewed.
