Biochemistry is a basic science subject introduced in the second year of the biology curriculum in Shanxi normal university. As the approach used in teaching biochemistry has always been the conventional lecture-based strategy, in this paper, we use the problem-based learning (PBL) as an innovative strategy in teaching the biochemistry. The study showed that the students found this alternative method acceptable particularly in motivating to clarify biochemical concepts and learn in depth, to develop skills required for life-long learning. This study will help to determine the educational role of the PBL in teaching the biochemistry...
