Project-based Learning (PoBL)

In this program, participants will be exposed to PoBL an instructional method in which students learn through a significant practical activity that involves investigation and solution of problems and it often results in an end-product such as a report, design, actual piece of equipment or software and even a house or a water supply for a village. Project work goes on for a considerable length of time which may vary from a few hours to a few years. Project work necessitates a variety of educational activities performed by the students with the instructors playing an advisory or supervisory role at different stages of the project. In undertaking learning through projects, students develop a number of important process or generic skills alongside subject content and discipline specific skills. These processes or generic skills can be summarized into the phases of a complete action cycle namely goal setting, planning, decision making, executing & monitoring and evaluating.
