Authentic Learning:

Authentic learning typically focuses on real-world, complex problems and their solutions. Authentic problem-based learning is an educational philosophy that places students at centre stage of the learning experience to solve authentic problems that mirror real work demands. Its educational goals are to develop students in acquiring integrated knowledge, self-directed learning skills, problem-solving skills and team work skills. It promotes a culture of active enquiry and includes classroom strategies that are increasingly representative of real world events. Students will engage in role-playing exercises, problem-based activities, case studies, simulations and participation in virtual communities of practice. The learning environments are inherently multidisciplinary. Problems are formulated through dialogue between the faculty and students.
