Education Methodology – College of Medicine

Sulaiman Al-Rajhi Colleges have adopted Problem-based learning (PBL) as its core education methodology in their aim to provide global standards education their students PBL is a student-centered pedagogy in which students learn about a subject through the experience of problem solving. Students learn both thinking strategies and domain knowledge. The goals of PBL are to help the students develop flexible knowledge, effective problem solving skills, self-directed learning, effective collaboration skills and intrinsic motivation. Problem-based learning is a style of active learning. PBL follows a constructivist perspective in learning as the role of the instructor is to guide and challenge the learning process rather than strictly providing knowledge. From this perspective, feedback and reflection on the learning process and group dynamics are essential components of PBL. Students are considered to be active agents who engage in social knowledge construction. PBL assists in processes of creating meaning and building personal interpretations of the subject based on experiences and interactions. PBL assists to guide the student from theory to practice during their journey through solving the problem.
