Implementing Project-Organized Problem-Based Learning in
international master programs
POPBL in classes where new students
with no previous experience in POPBL are
to be integrated with students
experienced in POPBL.

In this presentation the new students are
understood as students with no previous experience
in POPBL where the projects are allocated from
50% to 100% of the students workload every
semester.(450 – 900 hours/student)
These students may come directly from high
school or come from other universities and join
(master) programs which are conducted based on
POPBL
Torben Rosenørn, Aalborg University Esbjerg, 2010
When the students come directly from high school
they are in the first and second semesters attending
courses in which they learn how to learn through
POPBL. The courses are project supporting
courses and the learning is developed through the
work with projects ( 6 to 7 before B.S. level)
Students from other universities who join master
programmes must usually work together with
students with previous experience in POPBL.
The ”new students” must consequently learn about
the POPBL teaching method in order to be able to
work together with the other students who are
familiar with the method
Torben Rosenørn, Aalborg University Esbjerg, 2010
Why Project organized problem based learning?
Because it is easy to adapt the teacing to:
•Change in young peoples’ culture and values
•Continously growing amount of new knowledge
•Industry and society request new competences
•International competition
and it is motivating for the students as well as
For the teaching staff

The main areas to address to new students:
•The learning concept (POPBL)
•Analytical approach (they are very discriptive in their
approach)
•Work and learn in teams – also when the facilitator is not
present
•Collaboration (contracts)
•Learning contracts – Bloom’s taxonomy
•Written and oral communication/presentation
•Writing reports (references, validation of information)
•Assessment/examination

Desription of the theme includes relevant possible
problem areas from existing practical systems
The description of the theme generalizes the problem
and must be the basis for the projects

The difficult thing is to analyse the problems and to
make assumptions
They need to explain the assumptions
It is difficult to define the problems to solve based
on the received information
And it is difficult to learn to act as a team and not
as the individual student
