Experiential Education through Problem-Based Learning

Thursday, April 12th, 2-3pm

Center for Transformation, room 003 in Lamson Library

Problem-Based Learning (PBL) is an active-engagement, student-centered pedagogical approach to learning through real-world situational problem-solving. It can be viewed as a subset of Project-Based Learning, or a way to frame project-based work.   Instead of passively listening to lectures or even being led through the Socratic method of teaching through question and answers, it encourages self-directed learning through the exploration of complex, open-ended problems where the instructors facilitate and guide rather than teach.

This one hour session will provide an opportunity for faculty to share best practices around PBL, and to explore ways PBL can be utilized across the curriculum to enhance student learning and engagement.

Coffee, tea and snacks will be provided as after lunch pick-me-up.

April 2018 Conversation Topic: Building Connections

College students are surrounded by so many people on campuses in living and learning spaces, and yet many feel disconnected and alone. What causes this disconnection? Is it living in today’s fast paced society, advances in technology, and/or underlying fears that cause division? What could be driving a sense of isolation, and is there anything we can do about it? Please join us for our first Compassionate & Courageous Conversation as we explore the topic of connection.
