Principles of Problem-based Learning
In PBL, projects are organized as group work. ‘Projects’ mean ‘student-initiated and student-designed, empirically based investigation activities aimed at solving the problem’. The project is supported by courses but the project is what counts as most important. In other words the project is supported by other courses. High quality PBL presupposes a proper quantitative balance between, and temporal sequencing of, project activities and course activities.
