About the CITYLAB project
Engaging students with sustainable cities in Latin-America



The aim of the CITYLAB project was to enhance the quality of HEI’s in Latin America through problem based-learning. Problem-based learning is a proven innovative approach for introducing real-world problems in the education program with huge possibilities to transform the quality of learning and teaching.

It is a kind of active, integrated and constructive learning method that works from a student centered approach and emphasizes on learning to learn and learning by doing, and breaks with traditional teaching methods such as ex-cathedra lectures. In order to introduce and spread PBL, it is required to work on specific problems through multidisciplinary approaches.The aim of the CITYLAB project was to enhance the quality of HEI’s in Latin America through problem based-learning.
