This paper discusses some issues involved in a model of delivery adopted for widening participation at outreach centres for Liverpool Hope University and explores the rationale for using blended Problem-based learning (PBL) as a means of addressing the issues and improving learning. A number of principles are proposed for the effective use of blended PBL and the paper analyses a case study, explaining the design and organisation of the module, together with the research methodology adopted. It provides some initial guidelines for other practitioners who wish to pursue similar activities.
