    "Controversies in Medicine and Neuroscience: Through the Prism of History, Neurobiology, and Bioethics (2023) is well worth reading and studying. It should be standard on all doctor’s bookshelves and among the interested laymen."

Transforming Computing Education with Problem-Based Learning: From Educational Goals to Competencies

Future professional competencies in the field of computing, recommended by international forums and reference curricula, comprise a combination of knowledge, skills, and attitudes. These competencies can be developed through educational objectives which integrate theory and experience through teamwork, intense collaboration, and problem-solving. For this, it is necessary to have an authentic learning environment and well-defined pedagogical processes. In this context, this book argues that the educational strategy of Problem-Based Learning (PBL) can translate educational objectives into professional competencies. This book proposes a methodology to implement PBL in a manageable way. It also reports teaching and learning experiences concerning several computing professional profiles, providing a realistic picture of this methodology.
