Problem-based learning methodology (PBL) will be used for the advanced knowledge modules. PBL goes far beyond conventional teacher-centred approaches. It places the student at the forefront of the learning process, by transforming the teacher into a coach, who probes and challenges students towards constructing knowledge.
Students formulate and pursue their own learning objectives by doing research on a specific situation, formulating the appropriate questions, and producing their own solution to a problem. Teachers coach students by suggesting further study or enquiry, but without assigning fixed or predetermined learning activities. These enquiry-based teaching methods engage students in creating, questioning, and revising knowledge, while developing their skills in critical thinking, collaboration, communication, reasoning, synthesis and resilience, as well as offering the opportunity of learning how to learn.
INOWASIA trainned PBL in different sessions during the project, are you interested in one session for your university?
