Abstract / Description

One of our aims as lecturers is to create a learning context that engages students and help them develop a deeper understanding of the subject matter. Often these aims need to be achieved within an environment characterised by large classes and limited contact hours. This paper provides a reflection on the attempt to address the issues above using Problem-based Learning (PBL). The approach was introduced with some success in the 3rd year module on the ‘Regulation of International Trade’ (BU3058). The evidence suggests that student’s engagement increases and that better learning takes place.
