About the CITYLAB project
Engaging students with sustainable cities in Latin-America
The aim of the CITYLAB project was to enhance the quality of HEI’s in Latin America through problem based-learning. Problem-based learning is a proven innovative approach for introducing real-world problems in the education program with huge possibilities to transform the quality of learning and teaching. It is a kind of active, integrated and constructive learning method that works from a student centered approach and emphasizes on learning to learn and learning by doing, and breaks with traditional teaching methods such as ex-cathedra lectures. In order to introduce and spread PBL, it is required to work on specific problems through multidisciplinary approaches.
