THE PBL-BASED PEDAGOGICAL MODEL

The main teaching and study form at AAU is problem based and project organised learning (PBL). This “Aalborg PBL Model" builds bridges between the various approaches to teaching, research and innovation, and it connects students and researchers.

The study programmes at Aalborg University are characterized by problemsolving groupwork centered on authentic projects, often solved in cooperation with the business world. Besides giving the students the chance to apply theory to real-life issues, PBL provide graduates with unique competences in teamwork and in working analytically and result oriented – competences highly values by employers.

The PBL-based pedagogical model of the University has become both nationally and internationally recognised by universities, researchers and students as an advanced and efficient learning model. Thus, UNESCO has placed its only Danish Chair in PBL at Aalborg University.

Aalborg University stands out in the university sector with a low dropout- and a high completion rate. The PBL-based pedagogical model is one of the most important causes for this. At Aalborg University the students are in close contact with their teachers and supervisors throughout the semester, and the students are mutually accountable for the written project with their fellow group members, which together makes the students demonstrate a high level of self-motivation and personal responsibility for learning.

KNOWLEDGE FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF SOCIETY

As well as generating new knowledge, the efforts of researchers to create research-based teaching at AAU play a central role in fulfilling the vision of contributing knowledge of importance and relevance to the development of society towards greater sustainability in terms of resource management, the environment and social responsibility.

This commitment on the part of AAU researchers combines with research-oriented teaching to produce graduates who are highly qualified and ready for the labour-market, as well as research-based and value-adding innovation that is interesting, surprising, and relevant.
