Pan-American Network for
PAN-PBL promotes problem-based learning in K-12, undergraduate, graduate, and professional education throughout the Americas by providing PBL training and resource materials in Spanish and English, consulting with institutions that wish to implement PBL, and assisting in the organization of an international conference every two years.
PAN-PBL was conceived by members of the University of Delaware and Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú during its ALO/USAID project to promote the use of PBL in math and science education in Perú. The Network was created in Lima, Perú on December 9, 2004 at the first meeting of the organizing committee for PBL2006, and witnessed by representatives of university hosts of previous international PBL conferences in the Americas (document).
