The use of problem-based learning in medical education and other educational settings has escalated. What once was considered a "fringe" innovation has become much more mainstream. The author raises issues surrounding whether PBL will become such a successful innovation that it becomes the "norm", or whether its popularity and widespread adoption will fade and be replaced by another, newer innovation.
