The MD-PBL for Educators aims at strengthening capacity of academic staff to run effective problem based learning programmes in a multi-disciplinary format in their institutions. This is part of a larger initiative that is bringing together multidisciplinary teams to develop sustainable solutions for community challenges.
Participants will get case studies on how Aalto University has run MD-PBL programs over the years, and how C4DLab has launched one programme with mentorship from Aalto University. Further, participants will get an appreciation of some of the challenges that students have solved through the MD-PBL.
White-boards and sticky notes, photos and videos will be compiled throughout the learning exploration
Participants will receive a resource kit that they can use to either launch or enhance their own MD-PBL programmes in their institutions.
Learners are expected to complete a two-week online workshop on the Nairobi Design Thinking School (NDTS) web portal before the onset of the PBL for Educator’s workshop. This will help them maximize on this opportunity to test their hypothesis and gain valuable feedback in their quest to address the problem they have been assigned; as well as assist them in preparing for the field trip.
