Problem Based Learning

Image Picker for Section 0

 

 

The Motivation to Learn Begins with a Problem

In a problem-based learning (PBL) model, students engage complex, challenging problems and collaboratively work toward their resolution. PBL is about students connecting disciplinary knowledge to real-world problems—the motivation to solve a problem becomes the motivation to learn.

ITUE 

For more than twenty years, the Leaders and Fellows of the Institute for Transforming University Education (ITUE) have encouraged the adoption of student-centered and active classroom pedagogies—and in particular—the use of PBL in the  classroom. On- and off-campus workshops are held for faculty and students to enhance their understanding of PBL.

Recipient of a Hesburgh Certificate of Excellence

ITUE is a recipient of the Hesburgh Certificate of Excellence for its work in implementing problem-based learning in the classroom.
