Workshop Details

Problem Based Learning (PBL) is a student-centred methodology designed to help students develop; effective problem solving skills, self-directed learning, effective collaboration skills and intrinsic motivation.

This full-day in-house workshop provides an introduction to PBL, where participants work with facilitator Cath Fraser to explore examples and work through a step-by-step guide so they can plan how to implement PBL within their own teaching context.


Who is this in-house workshop for? 

This workshop is ideal for new tertiary educators, and those looking for a “refresher” to update their practice, an introduction to problem-based learning (PBL) and project-based learning. It may also be of value to practitioners without a formal teaching background, and can be adapted for most tertiary settings.
