With this book, we would like to tell
How we’re using PBL
To give our students confidence
Providing them with competence
That goes beyond the content base
And carries through their career days

This reflective book provides useful tips and ideas for problem-based learning, sharing personal experiences about PBL tutoring. Its ideas can be applied to group facilitation in general.
The writers discuss the tutor’s work mainly from the perspective of tutorial facilitation. They share the model of PBL used in business education at HAAGA-HELIA University of Applied Sciences. You will notice the shift from focus on content to focus on process and skills.
The discussion covers the roles in the learning community, emphasizing the importance of mutual support and values, and the idea of learning from one another constructively and collaboratively. It is important for the tutor to believe in PBL and trust the students.
The authors emphasise the nature and importance of an effective self and peer assessment system. The book explains how feedback can be successfully shared in every tutorial.
Senior Lecturers Matti Helelä and Harriet Fagerholm have worked as PBL tutors and curriculum developers in the business education at HAAGA-HELIA University of Applied Sciences since the beginning of the millennium.
