Problem-Based Learning

The author was very enthusiastic and engaging with his presentation on problem-Based Learning. The author made many excellent points as to why such a learning process should be used to enhance the education process for students as well as outlined some of the possible caveats that might be encountered.

This model of Problem Based learning is very similar to the model that we employ at Camosun College for the Technology programs where students are required to use troubleshooting, and problem-solving skills in order to complete labs. The end of their program culminates in a final project in which they must come up with a project idea, work in teams of their choosing, perform research, build prototypes, and ultimate troubleshoot their designs in order to have functioning projects by the end of term.
