FACiLiTATE is the national problem and enquiry based learning network in Ireland. It was launched in 2005 due to the growing interest in PBL as a method of curriculum delivery in Irish HE.  The network supports all those who teach in adopting enquiry and problem-based learning methodologies (EPBL).  It aims to:

  • Facilitate the sharing of experience in the introduction and implementation of PBL across disciplines and institutions in Ireland
  • Develop and support research in the practice of PBL.

FACILITATE provides online and face-to-face opportunities for EPBL practitioners, from beginner to expert, to share experiences, and disseminate their research findings.
