The last decade of the twentieth century and the first three years of the next have provided enormous challenges for educators around the world. These challenges have, and are still, impacting on higher education in ways that are shaking the sector to its very foundations. Reduced government funding, older student profile, pressure from industry, as well as the explosion in educational technology have all contributed to the recent volatility in Australian higher education. This paper presents a case study that details Central Queensland University’s approach to addressing some of these challenges by supporting the implementation of problem-based learning in its teaching and learning practices.
