Problem Based Learning

  • An instructional participant-centered approach which uses carefully constructed problems as a context for students to:
    • define their learning needs,
    • conduct self-directed enquiry
    • integrate theory and practice,
    • and apply knowledge and skills to develop a solution to a defined problem
  • Efficacy and advantages of PBL
    • Knowledge is acquired in context and builds on what is already known
    • Knowledge is acquired in context and builds on what is already known
    • Students continually explore their knowledge, identify both their personal learning needs and strategies required to address them. This process helps to develop skills for life-long learning
  • How does problem-based learning work?
    • Act as facilitators, making sure students are staying on track and finding the resources they need.
    • Raise questions to student groups that deepen the connections they make among concepts.
    • Strike a balance between providing direct guidance and encouraging self-directed learning.
  • What students do:
    • Address the problem, identifying what they need to learn in order to develop a solution and where to look for appropriate learning resources.
    • Collaborate to gather resources, share and synthesize their findings, and pose questions to guide further learning tasks for the group.
