Abstract

This sequential quantitative and qualitative study was done to assess the perception of faculties towards a hybrid Problem Based Learning (PBL) methodology. To begin with, all faculty members of the department featured in a round of PBL facilitation. Later in phase I,their perception was assessed using a validated self-administered questionnaire. In phase II, personalized interview was conducted with each faculty. Finally phase (III) involved a focus group discussion on issues identified in previous phases. Among the 10 faculties, 9 had good and 1 had average perception about PBL. The various issues brought out by faculty in phase (II) and (III) were; need of formalized training in PBL for facilitators, need of integrated PBL sessions, need of variety of PBL exercises and need of student’s assessment for every session.
