Project-based Learning Course description

DESCRIPTION

Project-Based Learning (PBL) is a methodology that encourages autonomous learning and collaboration through research and resolution of challenges for students.

PBL is a student-centred teaching and learning method in which the student acquires knowledge, skills and attitudes through real-life situations. Its purpose is to train students of being capable of analysing and facing problems in the same way they are going to do during their professional activity. Students learn to value and integrate the knowledge that will lead them to the acquisition of professional skills.

This PBL course provides the necessary techniques and professional knowledge to apply a current and functional methodology whose immediate results will favour students’ motivation and awareness about their own learning by establishing PBL epistemological principles, its relationship with new technologies and key competencies, as well as its work modalities and evaluation processes by analysing the methodological characteristics of PBL and its implementation in the educational field, knowing the strategies, techniques and structural phases of an educational project, and performing the appropriate evaluation of the students involved in the achievement of the educational project.

Educational development must establish appropriate strategies and techniques to provide to teaching processes aimed at achieving specific objectives through teamwork.

For this reason, the Project-Based Learning Course will make you an expert in the application of this type of learning to achieve excellent results and differentiate yourself by integrating an exceptional teaching methodology.
