Problem Based Learning



If you are using PBL for learning and teaching in your practice, remember to reflect on its use and ask your students what they think about this approach and in what way it is useful for their learning. Consider asking a colleague to review such activities or team teach. The further resources below might also be useful for deeper exploration and engagement with PBL. Reflection and evaluation using various sources, will help you refine your approach in the future and you might turn one of your PBL interventions into a research project and disseminate.

Please also get in touch if you would like UTA to create a Good Practice Exchange video to showcase your work in this area.
