An Introduction to Problem Based Learning in Higher Education
Problem-based learning and project work (PBL) can be found in a wide variety of higher education programmes and courses. Yet the ability to structure and execute problem- and project-oriented academic work is not innate – it is a skill that must be learned and practiced.
An Introduction to Problem Based Learning in Higher Education offers readers a solid foundation for maximising the potential of project work. The authors present a number of models, ideas and suggestions for how students can use the challenges and possibilities inherent in PBL to take responsibility for their own learning.
- Problems and Problem Formulations
- Project Planning and Management
- Collaboration among project groups and supervisors
- Communication and Conflict Management
- IT Use
An Introduction to Problem Based Learning in Higher Education is written by researchers from Aalborg University who have taught and researched PBL in humanities, engineering, natural-, and social-sciences courses. This interdisciplinary book can be used in any context.
