Today, 21 November 2019, the Department of Food Technology BINUS University held a guest lecture event with an interesting topic “Problem-Based Learning”. This topic was presented by Prof. Koen Vennema from Maastricht University.


Problembased learning (PBL) is a student-centered pedagogy in which students learn about a subject based on real-world problems or experience found in trigger material. This method is very useful to encourage using concepts and principles as opposed to the direct presentation of facts and concepts. It promotes the development of critical thinking skills, problem-solving abilities, and communication skills.
