What is PBL?
We need some agreement on what we mean by PBL. Below is an operational definition of PBL being considered by the task force.
PBL Operational Definition:
PBL stands for Practice Based Learning, also known as Problem Based Learning or Project Based Learning. It refers to curricular and co-curricular experiences that require students to apply, analyze, evaluate, or create knowledge in collaboration with others, often across disciplinary boundaries.
PBL objectives are to:
- increase flexible thinking and adaptability;
- deepen connections on campus and in the community;
- develop skills to enhance student professional success; and
- inspire students to actively contribute to the well being of their communities.
