The PBL Academy at Aalborg University (AAU) works across departments and faculties with the aim of supporting the continuous development of the Aalborg Model of Problem Based Learning (PBL). This pedagogical approach is a core value for Aalborg University, and is adopted across the entire university. The PBL Academy aims to create activities, support research networks and communicate issues relating to the Aalborg PBL Model both internally and externally.
The PBL Academy has a management board, but is an open initiative and network organisation open to participation and engagement from all employees at Aalborg University – as well as for external stakeholders.
The PBL Academy wishes to provide updated knowledge and resources on Problem Based Learning in general and with a particular focus on the Aalborg PBL model.
The PBL Academy furthermore encourages developments of PBL that creates synergy with current societal developments including the increasing digitalization of our societies and the values embedded in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
