Problem-based learning: Creating student-led activities for work-ready outcomes
Full-day workshop | $290 + GST
About the workshop
What people are saying...
“It gave me a practical outcome which I can go away with and use straight away.”
“Great afternoon session creating a PBL activity and sharing with others.”
“The handbook is extremely well put together and a valuable planning resource.”
Problem-Based Learning (PBL) is designed to help students develop effective problem solving skills, self-directed learning, effective collaboration skills and intrinsic motivation. This full-day workshop offers new tertiary educators, and those looking for a “refresher” to update their practice, an introduction to problem-based learning (PBL) and project-based learning.
Participants will work with the facilitators, Cath Fraser and Judith Honeyfield, to explore examples of PBL and work through a step-by-step guide so they can plan their own implementation of PBL within their teaching context.
The workshop will also be of value to practitioners without a formal teaching background, and can be adapted for most tertiary settings.
About the facilitator
Cath Fraser combines roles as a Research Leader at BoPP with independent research, writing and mentoring contracts for organisations across the tertiary sector. She has worked in student support as well as teaching and learning centres.
