Abstract:

Standard university curricula mainly focus on delivering course content, giving few opportunities to develop networking, prioritizing, team work, peer evaluation, and problem-solving skills. A tutor-less method of problem-based learning (PBL) suitable for large undergraduate classes was developed to model the above aspects of post-university real-world workplace experiences.
