Melanie Lanser, Director of Teaching, Learning and Academic Research at Derby College, will share the college’s trial of problem-based learning pedagogy in technical education and functional skills.

Melanie will share the evidence drawn on to support the problem-based learning approach, how Derby College worked with a range of employers to develop scenarios for use in the classroom and what they have learned about implementing this approach.
