In PBL, the quality of the problem-situation has the greatest impact on group work and the investment and motivation of the students in the group. A very important aspect of the situation is that it comforts one’s own misconception. It is only when one runs up against one’s own misconception that one can hope to truly internalize a new concept. Tintin is a bottomless source of situations that can be used to confront students with their misconceptions.
