Independent study activities. Report and conclusion. During a period of seven weeks groups of eight students met for two afternoons per week to work on the problems. Each group was assigned a staff member who had the task of facilitating the learning process.

Traditionally, Bloom’s taxonomy is widely used. This taxonomy distinguishes three main categories: the cognitive domain, psychomotor skills and attitudes (Bloom 1956). However, in a rationalistic paradigm, detailing learning objectives in such categories can easily result in fragmentation. The link between a particular element of knowledge and competence in practice gets easily lost. In a problem-based curriculum this link constitutes the core of the learning process. When a small group of students analyses a problem from professional practice, they test their combined knowledge regarding the subject at hand.
