Blended Project-based Learning
A refreshing way to learn
Project-based learning (PBL) is an educational approach that involves students actively engaging with real-world problems and challenges to learn new concepts and skills. In PBL, students work on projects that involve finding solutions to problems, creating something new, or both. These projects often involve creating a model, presentation, or prototype. Our courses utilize a blended approach, incorporating online content and other resources throughout the learning journey.
Students choose their projects
Allowing students to choose their own projects in a PBL course can lead to a more personalized, engaging, and meaningful learning experience for students.
Academic support is an important component of a PBL course, as it helps students to better understand the learning objectives, provides guidance and support, and encourages self-direction and critical thinking.
Lecture & office hours
Lecture & Office Hours provide students with the knowledge, guidance, and support they need to complete their projects successfully.
Having an academic timeline helps students to manage their time effectively and stay on track with their work. It also helps to keep the project focused and ensures that students are able to complete all the necessary tasks within the allotted time frame.
By allowing students to choose their own projects, teachers can tailor the learning experience to the individual needs and interests of each student. This can make the learning more meaningful and relevant to the student, which can increase their engagement and motivation.
Development of self-direction
When students are given the freedom to choose their own projects, they must take ownership of their learning and become more self-directed. This can help to develop important skills such as independence, responsibility, and self-management.
Opportunities for creativity
Allowing students to choose their own projects can provide an opportunity for them to be creative and come up with their own ideas and solutions to problems. This can help to develop their creativity and innovation skills.
Focus on small groups
The office hour / tutorial system is set in small-group instruction, which can foster more in-depth and engaging discussions, promote critical thinking and active learning, and build a sense of community among students.
Combines traditional & digital forms of Instructions
Blended project-based learning combines traditional classroom instruction with digital resources and tools, providing students with a more dynamic and engaging learning experience.
Emphasizes hands-on, real-world projects
Students can apply what they have learned to real-world problems and projects, which can help them develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
Promotes collaboration & teamwork
Students are often required to work in teams on projects, which can help them to develop important collaboration and teamwork skills.
