Course Description

Project-Based Learning (PBL) is a very popular approach to help school projects prepare students for the real-world. However, it can be improved and become more effective.

This course will help you:

  • Review and appreciate the value of PBL as a teaching and learning tool.
  • Develop and implement effective PBL projects.
  • Cultivate independent and strong learners.
  • Strengthen students’ mindset for tackling real-world problems.
