Master of Problem Based Learning in Engineering and Science, MPBL

The Master in Problem Based Learning is a fully online, highly interactive and flexible e-Learning programme for faculty staff at institutions which want to change to Problem Based Learning (PBL) – or for faculty staff who just are interested in learning more about PBL.

The outcome of this education

The overall aim of this master’s programme is to support participants in achieving competences that will allow them to act as change agents in the introduction of problem based and project organised learning at the level of a single course as well as at the level of a curriculum or an institution within the context of engineering and science education, addressing diverse groups of students.

In order to achieve this aim, the MPBL programme has been designed according to the PBL principles, i.e. it is problem based and project organised. Participants work in teams with educational experiments designed to solve real-life educational problems, preferably located within their own teaching practice.

The completed Master's programme entitles participants to the title:

  • Master i problembaseret læring i ingeniør- og naturvidenskab (Danish)
  • Master in Problem Based Learning in Engineering and Science (English).
