    Hello everyone and welcome to MY TESOL!

    I've heard a lot about Problem-based learning (PBL, not project-based learning) lately.
    I feel like it is time to experiment to use it in my classes for many reasons but some of the strongest reasons that I have are:
    - to give my students an opportunity to realize what, how and why they want to learn;
    - to be involved into the learning process;
    - to learn to be responsible for their learning;
    - to teach my students to develop such as problem-solving, teamwork, critical thinking and leadership skills.

    Have you and your students ever used PBL? Do you have some practical advice to share from your teaching experience with me?
    I appreciate any information and recommendations you think I should be aware of before I use PBL with my students.
