Problem-based learning is a student-centered teaching method in which complex, real-world problems are used as the vehicle to promote student learning of concepts and principles. Historically based in clinical preparation and professional schools including medicine and business, problem-based learning has since been infused in many other fields of study with positive learning outcomes for students at all levels.  Participants will explore the essential considerations for integrating this method in your course(s), discuss relevant learning outcomes specific to course content and additional skills that support student success in future academic and professional goals, and design a draft problem for their course.
