PhenoBl is generally characterized as an innovative teaching/learning method that is based on real-life scenarios, expressed as an integral contemporary problem or natural phenomenon, which serves as the starting point for learning. Students and teachers are stimulated to cross strict disciplinary boundaries in order to dive deeper into a topic, presenting and analyzing a problem. Such conditions provide a more versatile education: humanities, arts and STEM disciplines are developed simultaneously. The main aim of the research is to to find out how Lithuanian teachers evaluate their experience of applying PhenoBl. What factors do they highlight that influence their success in PhenoBl scenarios? Data collection methods: quantitative survey (n=405). Data analysis methods: SPSS program. Thematically homogeneous statements of the questionnaire were reduced to scales. Cronbach-alpha values of the reliability coefficient of the created scales ranged from 0.72 to 0.91. The created scales are related to such theoretical concepts as the variety of applied learning methods, educators' attitudes towards the application of innovations (positive or critical), the educational institution's innovative culture or its deficit, students' abilities and determination to learn actively and consciously. The hypothesis raised in the quantitative study: “Phenomenon-based education can be successfully applied when teachers have knowledge and didactic experience in the field of innovative learning methods, the teachers demonstrate positive attitude towards the introduction of educational innovations” was confirmed, as a correlation was found between the positive attitude towards innovative methods and the application of new methods.
