What are your general comments?

"The lecture introducing PBL was informative, however I felt like the prof giving the PBL introduction looked down on traditional learning methods, and was very narrow minded in assuming all students of the traditional learning method aren't able to motivate themselves to learn and all of us only study for a good grade. The PBL mock session was extremely weird as well. I just gave up trying to compete with 2 loud mouths in my group of 10. We had a writer, up at the board jotting down our ideas, I kept giving him time to write our ideas down before I say the next thing, but the 2 people in our group just won't shut up, shouting out every single remotely related thing that comes to their heads... stealing my ideas and putting the writer in a writing frenzy. This is not how I ususally work in a group, I don't think it fully assessed my communication skills. " Report Response
