Online Problem Based learning
Problem-based learning (PBL) is an active-learning, student-centered pedagogical methodology in which students learn about a subject through the experience of solving an open-ended problem normally based on real contexts and situations. This methodology also allows to further promote the development of interpersonal and intrapersonal skills like enhanced group collaboration and communication, leadership, inquiry and research, decision making, etc. The PBL process implies normally working f2f in small groups of learners something that has been rendered problematic due to the pandemics restrictions. The use of online PBL solutions allows to overcome the current limitations and also to extend the scope of application of this methodology to online collaboration processes. This will be demonstrated using the ALIEN PBL platform.
The webinar was delivered by Carlos Vaz de Carvalho of Porto Polytechnic.
