Under the Higher Education Conference cluster, Dr. Ramhari delivers a presentation on “Extending and Adapting Problem-Based Learning (PBL) in a Remote Setting”, in which he tackles basic terms about PBL during the start of the presentation. He then discussed more specific ideas which are shown through different media such as diagrams and video. The presentation concludes with the benefits that can be derived from this set-up, as well as the ways on how to adapt PBL in a remote setting given the current situation brought about by the pandemic. A short question and answer portion ensues together with the Conference Manager Germaine Khor.
