The Higher Education Authority is delighted to announce the publication of this toolkit which is one outcome of a three-year HEA NTFS funded project entitled: 'Hybrid Problem-Based Learning: a scalable approach to sustainability education? This toolkit is aimed at educators wishing to learn more about any one of the following areas:

  • traditional and hybrid problem-based learning;
  • delivering less resource intensive PBL;
  • the use of online learning technologies/social media in group-based teaching and learning;
  • education for sustainable development; and,
  • managing student group working dynamics.

The Higher Education Authority hopes this toolkit is a useful and valuable resource for those in the ESD community and beyond and would value any feedback.
