        Phenomenon-based learning is an approach of Finnish education after educational reform in 2016. The teaching approach is based on the phenomena of the world in different topics of learners’ view, called integrated learning. Learners ask questions and find the answers through cooperative problem solving beyond the classroom via the internet and information system in the digital era for enhancing the learner’s knowledge in the real world. This article presents the concept of phenomenon-based learning, student/instructor roles, and the steps of instruction for educational instructors to use and apply in learning management.
