7.3 Problem-based learning

Problem-based learning is a student-centered pedagogy in which students learn about a subject by the analysis of a given problem as a starting point for the acquisition of new knowledge.

Learners are actively encouraged to reason and solve the problem by obtaining and drawing autonomously from all the information sources necessary for this purpose.

Students are divided into groups, encouraging a process of collaborative learning.
