Twenty-first century skills necessitate the implementation of instruction that allows students to apply course content, take ownership of their learning, use technology meaningfully, and collaborate. Problem-Based Learning (PBL) is one pedagogical approach that might fit in your teaching toolbox.
PBL is a student-centered, inquiry-based instructional model in which learners engage with an authentic, ill-structured problem that requires further research (Jonassen & Hung, 2008). In this workshop, participants will be guided step-by-step to identify, design, develop and assess PBL.
At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
- Describe the purpose and benefits of Problem-based learning (PBL)
- Identify Outcomes/Assessments
- Design the scenario or triggers
- Facilitate problem-based learning discussion
- Perform PBL assessment using rubrics
