Do you want to include more problem-based learning in your units, but don't know how?
Or are you already using problem-based learning, and want to share and compare your experiences?
In response to the strong interest expressed at ACSME 2015, FYiMaths will hold a forum on Problem-Based Learning in mathematics at the University of Sydney, November 24-25.
We will showcase current examples of how PBL is being used in classrooms, and discuss how it contributes to the development of graduate skills.
We'll hear from industry representatives on what they value about maths graduates (and what they feel is missing), and discuss how PBL might be useful.
We’ll also have the chance to ask the experts about the pitfalls and benefits of PBL.
When: Thu 24 - Fri 25 November
Where: University of Sydney, NSW
Call for Submissions: To submit a talk, please send an email to Anita Ponsaing: email@example.com by 31 October 2016. Please include a short abstract (250 words) about your experience of PBL. Possible topics could include:
Why did you decide to use problem-based learning in your teaching?
What are you doing with problem-based learning?
What challenges have you faced, and how did you overcome them?
