Parallel abstracts


Problem-based learning (PBL,) is a worldwide popular educational philosophy but in some institutions, it is considered a revolutionary teaching strategy to implement. The International Medical University (IMU) has utilized PBL as a key delivery tool of its medical programme and to encourage life-long learning amongst it s students. The university has also carried out faculty development in PBL since its inception in 1992. This is in order to improve PBL sessions, make sure faculty understand what is expected of them during these sessions and ensure our students derive the full benefit of PBL. The aim of this study is to determine faculty perceptions of PBL at IMU After a focus group interview a questionnaire was designed and distributed to 75 faculty members. The response rate was 61%. Generally most faculty members were satisfied with content that the students need to learn through PBL. However; some gave mixed responses towards the PBL process at IMU.
