Three Chinese universities have entered a collaboration with Aalborg University in northern Jutland on Project Based Learning
Three Chinese universities have entered a collaboration with Aalborg University in northern Jutland on Project Based Learning (PBL), a teaching method Aalborg University is internationally known for and which China wants to develop for its medical training programmes.
 
Pro-Dean Egon Toft of Aalborg University, who has just returned from China, says: "We have started collaboration with three Chinese universities including two of the largest in medical training. They have worked with PBL for a period and have documented that this approach is a benefit for their students. And now they have signalled their wish for a joint effort with Aalborg University to draw on our experience."
 
The new collaboration agreements have been entered with Peking University Medical Research Center in Beijing, China Medical University in Shenyang and Norman Bethune College of Medicine in Changchun. In addition to PBL, the agreements include exchange of scientific staff and shared PhD courses in the medical area.
 
Aalborg University has approx. 14,000 students of whom about 3,500 are enrolled at the Faculty of Humanities, 4,600 at the Faculty of Social Sciences and 5,500 at the Faculty of Engineering, Science and Medicine. The university is a member of the European Consortium of Innovative Universities (ECIU), whose purpose is to exchange experience and develop new projects in education, research and regional development.
