Project based learning or problems becoming learned

Nadine Adams, Josua Pienaar, Clinton Hayes


Project based learning is becoming widely accepted within engineering programmes across Australia. Supporters of this method of learning and teaching claim the method immerses the student in the subject and allows them to learn through hands on activities. Students are assessed based on their ability to complete a given project within a team environment. We examine the project based learning engineering programme at Central Queensland University and the students' opinions of its components. Present research and practice into authentic assessment and project based learning are investigated and comparison is made between these and the responses of the students.
