Just out! EDvance presents blended practices in PBL

In the aftermath of the first COVID-19 lockdown, EDLAB has researched the variety of and experiences with blended educational practices with a specific focus on problem-based learning. In 2021, researchers Dr. HQ Chim and Anne van Dijk, MSc., ran the EDvance project around the question: “What is the optimal setting for blended or technology-assisted PBL and how do we achieve this setting within the CCCS principles?”

Throughout the project, the researchers collected educational practices and experiences from the UM community as well as national and international universities. They backed their findings with evidence-based literature.

The results are now bundled in the EDvance report. Besides an overview of good blended educational practices in PBL, the booklet provides strategies to support students and educators, focusing on the entire educational process, at course – and curriculum level, including such themes as well-being and community building. Although many of the practices discussed within this report are educational practices and innovations enhanced by technology, non-digital practices are also showcased.
