Workshop: Aligning study competences with the AAU PBL model

This workshop aims to introduce new students just entering AAU at the Master level to the AAU PBL model. The introduction includes the theoretical pillars of PBL, the specific characteristics of the AAU PBL model compared to other PBL models as well as the overall implications of PBL on teaching and study practice.

Furthermore, students are facilitated to state their understanding of PBL based on the introduction as well as previous study experience and discuss the transfer of study-competences from other study environments to the AAU PBL environment.

The students work to clarify their own PBL understanding by "concept mapping" in groups and across groups. Each group define their understanding of PBL and the analytical parameters to be used on this basis in WS3 regarding Meta reflection.

The ambition is that after this workshop, students can outline current competences that will strengthen their future PBL practice at AAU and furthermore formulate personal learning objectives to develop specific PBL qualifications.
