**Problem Based Learning Workshop**

**July 9 ^{th} -11^{th} **

In a problem-based learning (PBL) model, students engage in complex, challenging problems and collaboratively work toward their resolution. PBL is about students connecting disciplinary knowledge to real-world problems—the motivation to solve a problem becomes the motivation to learn.

This workshop will demonstrate problem-based learning (PBL) and model ways that PBL can be used effectively in all disciplines. We will begin with a problem, and participants will work in teams to experience first-hand what this instructional approach entails. We will then move to the main focus of this program: writing effective problem-based materials. Participants will leave the session with new or revised problems for use in their courses

Specific workshop topics include:

- Introduction to PBL

- What makes a good PBL problem

- Group dynamics 101

- Thinking through assessment

- Flipping the classroom

- Problem development and presentations

**The workshop will be help in the MEM seminar room (Curtis 162) from 9am-3:30pm on Tuesday July 9 ^{th} and Wednesday July 10^{th}, and then from 8am-1pm on Thursday July 11^{th}. **

**If you are interested in attending, please email Dr. Alisa Morrs Clyne (asm67@drexel.edu) by Friday July 5 ^{th} . The workshop is open for both faculty and graduate students.**
