Events on the subject of Problem-based Learning

The congress PBL2016 is part of different activities to Problem-based Learning.

Congress Problem-based Learning – Promoting competences – Shaping the future, 16 to 17 June 2016, Zurich

PBL2016 – Zurich

In recent years competence orientation has become a primary focus of educational debate. Problem-based Learning (PBL) and related approaches such as Project-based Learning and Enquiry-based Learning are seen as promising methods of establishing competence development in educational courses, thereby providing a comprehensive basis for promoting learning processes and the skills necessary to operate effectively in everyday life.

At the PBL 2016 Conference, contributions from research, teaching and practice, and from the five keynote speakers, will shed light on how PBL and related approaches can meet the demand for competence orientation in higher vocational education at universities of applied sciences and traditional universities.
