Rich,

Thank you for the reply... I did not quite understand the point you were
trying to get across, however.  Were you implying that problem-based
learning / teaching manifests itself or not according to the
diversity of the classroom population?  Or, are you trying to say that the
instructor must assess whether he or she will apply pbl/t as a result of 
the diversity?  Please explain what you mean by diversity, and how you
feel it applies to pbl/t.

Steffi
