Problem Based Learning Tutor Training

Problem Based Learning Tutor Training

Issued on:

This badge is intended to introduce the steps involved in teaching through Problem Based Learning tutorials developed at the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences UCC. As such it will provide introductory training in how to teach students through the PBL method for individuals who have a role as a tutor in any UCC modules that use or would like to use PBL, either as the main method of delivery or as individual or occasional components of a module. We are targeting university tutors currently involved in PBL tutoring at any level and to any degree, and incoming tutors who require training to facilitate PBL mediated learning content. Training will be sufficient for tutors to introduce PBL in modules and use PBL design criteria for teaching material.
