ABSTRACT
Problem-based learning is a method of teaching-learning-evaluation consisting in putting students in front of problem-situations created purposefully to enhance the learning process through their own effort. Applying problem-based learning in tertiary education raises certain issues related to the effectiveness and efficiency of student learning. The present study aims at determining the extent to which the application of this method in the instructional activities in tertiary education leads to efficient and effective learning. Data were collected through the survey method, using as a research tool a questionnaire with 12 pre-coded items and 2 opened questions. The sample was made up of 95 students of the Bachelor cycle majoring in Land Survey and Environmental Engineering in Agriculture. The results put into light the beneficial effects of the use of this method in seminar activities, thereby ensuring a more effective learning, whereas the method requires a long time to implement. Research relevance justifies in the context of improving the quality of instruction in tertiary education with specific requirements, underlying teachers’ opinions on the use of this method in theoretical and practical activities.

Keywords: problem-based learning, active method, efficiency of student learning.
