Title: Perceptions, experiences, and outcomes implementing PBL (Problem- Based Learning) at the faculty of sciences of Tocantins FACIT, Brazil


For many years, dental education has focused on traditional lecture-based education. With this traditional pedagogic approach students solely received information from the lecturer and unconsciously they merely dealt passively with new situations, making no effort toward thinking and innovation. Since its implantation, the Dentistry course at Faculty of Science of Tocantins, (FACIT) in Brazil, has been working with multidisciplinary curricula based on active learning and has introduced the Problem-based Learning method (PBL) as a tool for the teaching-learning process. The training and integration of this method have been a challenge. Thus, this presentation aims to show how PBL was implemented at FACIT, focusing on the outcomes, pros, and cons from the student ´s and instructor ´s point of view and also, the perception of FACIT based on its 5 years of experience with this method.
