Fitness For Purpose: Developing the Pedagogy of Project-Based Collaborative Learning

10 November 2019

The aims of the project were to advance knowledge and understanding of the pedagogy of project-based learning; consider the implications for post-16 (vocational) Initial Teacher Education; pilot a project-based learning enrichment module for IOE Post-Graduate Certificate in Education and post-graduate teaching assistants and improve our pedagogic practice in using project-based learning. Once analysis was completed, the team, consisting of Emanuela Tilley, Kate Roach, Janet Broad, Andrea Detmer and led by Ann Lahiff, findings from the project were presented at a series of engineering education conferences throughout 2018-19. The focus of papers has varied from addressing issues around the role of PjBL in developing interdisciplinary as well as disciplinary learning, (at ISEE, EERN and REES) to considerations of the professional development of staff involved in PjBL (at ISEE and EERN).
