Crynodeb

A Problem-Based Learning (PBL) approach was piloted across the Master’s in Music Therapy programme at the University of South Wales. The main aim of the project was to explore whether the development of music therapy students’ practical and clinical reasoning skills could be enhanced by using a PBL approach during training. Case scenarios integrating many aspects of required learning covering key curriculum areas were developed and used in PBL sessions with each year group. The sessions were facilitated by a trained PBL facilitator and observed by the course leader. Students completed a pre- and post-PBL survey, giving information about their confidence in several areas of clinical reasoning. Feedback was also gathered on their views on the PBL approach and effects on their learning experience. Results show that engaging with the PBL process had a positive effect on students’ clinical reasoning confidence, and that students valued the experience.
