Abstract

‘Action learning’ is based on the concept that ‘through the process of reflection and action it is possible to solve problems’. (Savin Baden; 2004). The aim of this action research project was to investigate the use of the Problem Based Learning (PBL) approach within the Skills 102 module, for Law students to develop the appropriate skills required to become independent learners. The study highlights that despite it being on a small scale the students perceived PBL as a positive engaging experience. Hence it is worth investing further time in the context of the Skills 102 module. The recommendations include further improve the gains from the process these include intra-peer assessments within the PBL and review of the role of the facilitator.
