Problem-Based Learning (PBL) could help to change students' learning mode, and to change the teacher-centered philosophy of education to student-centered. This article described a PBL mode under the guidance of instruction system design, constructivism learning theory , Brunner's discovery method and PBL pedagogy. Software engineering course was taken as the example to illustrate the implementation of the PBL model. Questionnaire was administered to the students, and the results were generally positive. PBL could help students develop the abilities to think critically and analyze complex problems; to find, evaluate, and use appropriate resources; to work in teams; and to communicate effectively both orally and in writing.
