Only few weeks to go before the UM free online course on Problem Based Learning (PBL) will start! This course gives the opportunity to learn how to apply this innovative teaching method, which has proven to be successful in institutions such as Stanford University and University College London.
Since its founding, Maastricht University has applied PBL to all its teaching – it is the first university in the world to apply it so comprehensively. Our curriculum provides a student-centred approach that not only emphasises critical thinking, but also promotes collaboration in small groups, engages students, and provides them with the skills they need to be successful in their future careers.
The flexible online course will span 8 weeks and will give participants the opportunity to develop knowledge and skills in an innovative manner. Depending on your needs, you may pursue one of three tracks:
- teaching and tutoring
- design and development
- or assessment and organisation.
By the end of the course, you will not only have learned how to apply Problem Based Learning, but will also have directly experienced learning with PBL.
