The aim of the project is to support participants in developing competences to change educational practices to PBL, including evaluation of such change processes and their educational outcomes. Another aim is to support participants in achieving knowledge about theories of educational change management and quality assurance systems, in preparation for semester 4.
In this problem based project the participants will implement and evaluate an educational change in an institution of higher education, introducing elements of PBL. The implementation should include arguing for the choice of PBL elements. To the extent possible, the PBL activity to be implemented in the 3rd semester should be the PBL activity designed and planned during semester 2, thus securing the continuity and progress in the MPBL study.
Participants may choose to focus on a single case study or include several case studies, in order to compare how implementation of similar PBL activities turns out in different contexts.
The results of the project work should be documented in a project report, which should identify and document stages in the implementation process, including evaluation procedures and methods. The project should preferably be carried out in teams of 2-4 participants and the project work processes should be documented in a process analysis, jointly written by the project team members.
The teaching format is a group project, including self-study, online group work, project facilitation and thematic online sessions. In this semester, the thematic sessions focus on how to fulfil the intended learning outcomes for the project and on evaluation methods.
