Phenomenon Based Learning (PhBL101)

The purpose of education is to promote life-long and broad learning leading to holistic development and well-being of all learners as well as to improve their skills for living in a sustainable way.
Phenomenon-based learning (PhBL or PhenoBL) is a multidisciplinary, constructivist form of learning or pedagogy where students study a topic or concept in a holistic approach instead of in a subject-based approach. 
The goal of phenomenon-based learning is to prepare learners to handle real-world problems in an active learning environment using various discovery methods. This is easier said than done. In this practical, hands-on course, the course participants will explore the path to PhBL by using practical case studies, best practices, and examples of the failed cases too.
