Titel:  "Problem Based Learning – the Aalborg way"


Problem Based Learning (PBL) has been successfully applied at Aalborg University (AAU) since it was established in 1974. PBL is not only about rote learning. Every semester students work in a group with fellow students having different academic strengths and weaknesses, combining their common knowledge to solve a problem. The work should end in the submission of a semester report, describing the main problem, the objectives and the methodology how the problem was solved and how successful they were in achieving the objectives, detailing the results, including simulation, modelling and laboratory experiments.

Group members will need to collaborate with each other, define and divide the tasks for achieving the goals that they set in the beginning of the project. This way the group work will have an academic and social dimension at the same time, by which the students will learn how to work together with other people, a quality which is very important on the labor market/in industry.

PBL gives the opportunity to put theoretical knowledge into practice. By working with “real-life” problems, the students will not only gain professional experience, but they will also make good contacts, that can be used in the future in case of job applications. Furthermore, these “real-life” problems come from industrial partners/companies, therefore students will work with problems related to leading edge research, and their results/findings might be included in tomorrow’s commercial products.
