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.
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
- Communication and conflict
- IT use
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 educational context within higher education.
