Problem-Based Learning

In coordination with the departmental staff development team, the Political Science department programme director team has conducted a session on Problem-Based Learning (PBL) on the 22nd of January, 2018. Ms. Sandra Ramzy shared her experience with this learning approach during her Masters in Maastricht University. She introduced to the staff members what problem-based learning is. She explained that it is a student-centered approach to learning and discussed the prospects for implementing this in the BUE. The session also tackled the main obstacles the department might face in applying PBL and plausible solutions to overcome them. In this discussion, methods to enforce PBL were suggested to ensure optimum results.
