    Abstract

    In this paper we present an overview of the use of Problem Based Learning (PBL) in a first year Computer Science programming module.PBL was not employed in any of the programmong modules within the Department of Computer Science and assessment and learning for this module was on an individual student basis. We outline the problems that we encountered with our previous approach for teaching this module and our rationale for enhancing our approach through PBL.
