Problem Based Learning

Problem Based Learning

Problem Based Learning (PBL) is an approach that puts students at the center of their education by having them learn through solving real-world problems.

Problem Based Learning (or PBL) is a student-centered pedagogy in which students learn about a subject through the experience of solving an open-ended problem. Butterfly Pavilion educators will work with your students to solve real world problems facing invertebrates and conservation.

You should opt PBLs because it fosters critical thinking, encourages collaboration, and enhances problem-solving skills. It shifts the focus from memorization to practical application, making learning more engaging for students. PBL also mirrors real-world scenarios, preparing students for challenges beyond the classroom. It turns education into a dynamic, hands-on adventure where students actively participate in their own learning journey.

PBLs with Butterfly Pavilion gives your students the opportunity to solve a real-world problem alongside Butterfly Pavilion educators, experts in invertebrate conservation. This allows students hands-on opportunities and carrier exploration into the many careers in science and education.
