At Smith we are planning to reorganize our Intro to GIS course along the lines of Community Based Research/Learning which will be similar to PBL (at least in my mind).  We are just beginning the conversation, but hope CBR/PBL will:

more deeply engage students,
require advanced critical thinking, and
spark imagination.

I will report back on our efforts and hopefully this thread will add to our recipe.  Bon Appetit!
