Abstract: The limited literature on problem based learning (PBL) in the context of Ghana instigates the doubt as to whether universities in the country apply this educational strategy. To clear this doubt, the present study is conducted to outline the experiences and review the resources that are inclined to the environments of PBL, using survey data from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST). Survey participants were educational managers, teachers and students of the university. In the results, the researchers identified experiences among teachers and students that agree with the principles of PBL. The participants largely admitted that the university has insufficient support for PBL in terms of human and infrastructural resources. Content expert teachers constitute the only human resource, yet they lack the requisite training for facilitating PBL. Considerably more attention is needed regarding infrastructure, training on the science of facilitation and platforms for industrial and other real-life situational exposure.
