PBL – learning formats with (basic) groups

[wpcol_3quarter id=”” class=”” style=””] By focusing on problem- and project-based teaching, the TUHH is taking into account findings from learning research, which see these as particularly suitable forms of imparting knowledge at universities. The TUHH adopts classic PBL variants from the universities in Maastricht and Aalborg, among others, and at the same time looks for the right fit for the respective courses here. With the problem-based and project-based learning (PBL) formats you can:

  • Encourage the active participation of students and their responsibility for the learning process
  • Strengthen the connection between theory and practice in your event
  • facilitate the understanding of complex interrelationships

In PBL, groups of 3 to about 15 students work on practice-based problems and projects. Problem-based learning as a structured method of knowledge construction supports students in practicing independent problem solving. A practical case and the group’s prior knowledge are the starting point for students’ own learning questions. Between sessions, they seek new information on the questions. At the beginning of the next session, the new knowledge is summarized. From this point, the next problem is brought into focus. Project-based learning is a different story. A project can be worked on over a semester, and at the end, each group presents its result. Along the way, they have followed a project plan, divided up their tasks, and combined the partial results into a coherent whole. PBL events are new – for teachers and learners. The subject specialists for PBL offer support and advice from theory and practice for all teachers at TUHH.
