On the 4th of May at ‘University Teaching Day’ Diana Stentoft and Erik Laursen from the PBL Academy hosted a well-attended workshop that addressed PBL and the creation of academic progression through education. In their presentation, Erik and Diana spoke on different approaches regarding progression. On this matter, they presented two models.
Firstly, a model that works with and describes progression as competencies that are continuously added to supplement the competencies that the student already have. Secondly, a model regarding progression as a continuously extension of complexity in mastered knowledge and ability. Examples of the consequences of the different approaches regarding specific PBL-competencies concluded the presentation. After the presentation, the participants debated in teams. The workshop was completed with a plenary concluding discussion on the topics discussed in the groups.
