This online PBL course is an introductory course on Problem Based Learning (PBL) in Higher Education.

The popularity of Problem based learning has increased very much over the last couple of decades and nowadays the acronym ‘PBL’ is used - and misused – for a multitude of different teaching and learning approaches in many universities around the world. The intention of this course is to shed some light on and clarify some of the uncertainties that exist about what problem based learning is, how it can be implemented and how a change to PBL can be achieved.
