Courses on offer

Problem-based learning and teaching: Careum teaches the basics of the model to teachers, training officers, and vocational trainers.

How do problem-based learning and teaching (PBL) work in terms of instruction? Pedagogical staff can take advantage of a range of courses designed to help them pick up the basics of the didactic model and associated forms of learning. Specific measures are communicated for ensuring successful implementation of self-managed and cooperative learning and teaching in both an educational and practical context.

Courses are led by experts. They combine what people need to know in order to implement problem-based learning within tutored sessions or skills training, devise learning and teaching material, and adopt a more academic take on the pedagogical learning concept.

The courses are run by Careum Continuing Education in collaboration with the Careum Training Centre and Careum Education Management (the competence centre for self-managed and interprofessional learning).
