Answer to "Do learners require orientation for PBL?"

‚Äč

The answer is an emphatic ‘Yes’. They need to become familiar with the PBL process and understand the rationale and underpinning pedagogy. This is particularly so in an undergraduate programme when many are transitioning from the traditional didactic learning approach that generally characterises their schooling. As many will also be at university for the first time, they need to be supported during this transition.
