Facilitating Problem/Case-based Learning (P/CBL): an Introduction
Problem or Case-based learning (P/CBL) is a pedagogical approach used in many disciplines to promote active student engagement and enhance learning. It is student-centred and inquiry-based. Application and integration of knowledge are key to work-place success and the role of the facilitator is crucial in helping students make the most of the learning opportunity and achieve the desired curriculum outcomes.
This interactive workshop will explore the use of P/CBL and the role of the facilitator. We will then explore the skills and attributes of good facilitators and consider how these can be developed in participants’ own contexts.
