I found this link from Alisha’s blog about project based learning. I see this as a benefit in my program due to the concept of students actively exploring real world problems and situations which require them to develop deeper knowledge and challenges them to investigate.
My program is very interactive with students in clinic situations, not only teach them skills but replicate an environment where they are challenged to anticipate and problem solve from real world scenarios. Project based learning would provide a framework for students to focus on taking responsibility for their learning and developing critical thinking skills. It would expand and enhance knowledge learned.
