A role for problem-based learning in higher education in the developing world
There is growing agreement about the need urgently and significantly to increase the quantitative capacity of higher education institutions in developing countries. At the same time education delivered by those institutions must become more relevant to the problems faced by the developing world. This chapter advocates student-centred problem-based learning (PBL) as an approach to learning that may be instrumental in addressing the latter challenge. The educational approach for health professions education as practised and investigated by FHML over many years may have great potential for higher education in all kinds of domains in the developing world. This seems to be confirmed by the observation that many education institutions in the developing world have shown interest in the Maastricht PBL approach to education.
