Problem Based Learning (PBL) in the Secondary School


Want to get your students actively exploring real-world problems and challenges to acquire deeper knowledge? In Problem Based Learning students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an engaging, "wicked" problem, or challenge. This workshop is for teachers who are wanting to use problem based learning for their Year 9-10 students and will include examples from classrooms and schools already successfully using the approach.

Learning outcomes

Participants will:

  • understand why change is necessary
  • identify a delivery model for problem based learning (PBL) in their secondary school context to engage a diverse range of learners
  • investigate opportunities to develop cross-curricular links
  • develop a better understanding of collaborative teaching models to support PBL.
