The 2018 PBL International Research Symposium was held at Tsinghua University in China from October 19 to 21. The theme was “Innovation, PBL and competency in Engineering Education”. PBL is a learner-centric approach which is used in research to integrate theory and practice to achieve more viable solutions to specific problems. DTU was the only Vietnamese university to participate.

Ms. Nguyen Le Giang Thien said: “We have gained a clearer understanding of the role of the lecturer when applying PBL to their subject, and PBL workgroup methods. We learned about the role of the Facilitator, by playing the 'Murder Game', and attended panel and debating sessions. The symposium will enable all the delegations to modify and upgrade their current teaching methods to improve education at DTU and elsewhere.”
