Problem-based learning (PBL) is a student-centered pedagogy in which students learn about a subject through the experience of solving an open-ended problem. Students learn both thinking strategies and domain knowledge. The goals of PBL are to help students develop flexible knowledge, effective problem solving skills, self-directed learning, effective collaboration skills and intrinsic motivation. Problem-based learning is a style of active learning.
Shandong University School of Medicine began to launch PBL as a lecture from the 3rd year of MBBS Program (six-year) when students have acquired certain medical knowledge and received good feedback. The students said PBL class is interesting, useful and they love it so much. The below pictures are showing grade 2014 spring class were in their PBL lecture.
