Preamble

Problem-Based Learning (PBL) model is one that creates an environment for learners to challenges problems in the society with real solutions. It helps them connect the multidisciplinary knowledge they get in classroom with real world problems hence creating a learner-centred experience away from the traditional theorized lectures. This conference aims at creating an environment where faculty and stakeholders in the education sector will discuss and share the opportunities, challenges and environments within this model.
