Learning via Problem-Solving: A PBL approach

Problem-based learning (PBL) is a pedagogical approach whereby students engage in collaborative learning and critical thinking processes that are contextualized around solving a real-world problem. Research suggests that PBL activities encourage the development of flexible knowledge, problem-solving, and self-directed learning skills, while also supporting collaborative knowledge construction among learners. In this workshop, participants will learn more about the PBL approach and how to design and implement PBL in their courses.
