The Aalborg University PO-PBL Model from a Socio-Cultural Learning Perspective
Hernandez, Carola; Ravn, Ole; Valero, Paola
Journal of Problem Based Learning in Higher Education, v3 n2 p16-36 2015
Since the 1970s, Aalborg University has been developing a new pedagogical model in higher education: The Project Oriented-Problem Based Learning (PO-PBL). In particular, the Faculty of Engineering and Science has developed a pedagogical proposal that introduces students to a different type of learning. One of the theoretical frameworks underpinning the understanding of learning is the socio-cultural perspective. This paper aims at exploring and analyzing the PO-PBL model from this theoretical perspective. In addition, this reading may also open a new viewpoint in science teaching for other universities.
