Project Based Learning is a teaching approach that utilizes multifaceted projects as a central strategy for teaching students (in the academia). In a PBL based course the students have to plan a project about an authentic, engaging question, problem or challenge. It combines key knowledge with essential skills like problem solving, communication and collaboration with others, and self-management.
