EACEA sustainability monitoring visit

An excerpt from the Agency monitoring visit conducted on June 10, 2021, with a focus on sustainability of the PBLMD project:

"PBLMD is a ground-breaking CBHE project which has succeeded to reshape the higher education teaching/learning methodologies and has opened minds both of academic staff, as well as of students engaged within problem-based learning study programmes. At some universities these programmes have become the most attractive for students with the greatest contest at admission, in other cases they have expanded to new specialties, faculties or levels of study (e.g. PBL Master programmes), have resulted in opening new PBLMD spaces for group work and have made obvious the need for urgent change in more conservative environments.

Up until now it has been the only CBHE project in Moldova with Special Mobility Strand, which has highly increased its popularity among teachers and students, even if 1/3 of the total number of students` mobilities couldn’t be realized. A continuous education programme for academic staff has been developed at all 6 partner universities and new staff is annually trained within it. Though being a joint project, PBLMD has aimed to attain national/structural level impact, by increasing academic autonomy of Moldovan universities due to the insistence and determination of the project coordination team."
