Project-Based Learning

New Media  | 25 de octubre de 2013  | Vistas: 191

Robert Martello and Jonathan Stolk talk about the project-based learning (PBL) methodology, an interdisciplinary, non-traditional teaching technique involving different potential learning goals and student's hands-on experiences. They tell how their idea of teaching a joint course combining engineering and history came about. As well, they comment on the differences between project-based learning and problem-based learning approaches. Martello and Stolk conclude by outlining three steps to design a PBL project: prioritize the intended learning objectives, line-up course activities to deliver the goals, and determine the desired outcomes for students to achieve.
