Why Problem-Based Learning?

  • Using meaningful situations helps students relate theory to practice.
  • A problem-based approach fosters an integrated understanding of concepts.
  • While they learn the course content, students also learn how to learn!
  • The pedagogical design enables students to work alone or in groups.
  • There’s more than one way to solve a problem!
  • The activities can form the basis of formative or summative evaluations
