Steinø, Nicolai; Khalid, Md. Saufuddin – Journal of Problem Based Learning in Higher Education, 2017
Much architecture and design teaching is based on the studio format, where the co-presence in time and space of students, instructors and physical learning artefacts form a triangle from which the learning emerges. Yet with the advent of online communication platforms and learning management systems (LMS), there is reason to study how these…

Jensen, Camilla Gyldendahl – Journal of Problem Based Learning in Higher Education, 2017
"Virtual reality" adds a new dimension to problem-based learning (PBL) environments in the architecture and building construction educations, where a realistic and lifelike presence in a building enables students to assess and discuss how the various solutions interact with each other. Combined with "Building Information…

Sørensen, Marie Jull – Journal of Problem Based Learning in Higher Education, 2017
Changing learning objectives was the beginning of rethinking the pedagogical frame of my courses within a traditional law study program. The objectives were changed in order to aim for students becoming better at reflecting on the curriculum. I chose to work within a workshop frame incorporating some of the Aalborg PBL principles. The two courses…

Hüttel, Hans; Gnaur, Dorina – Journal of Problem Based Learning in Higher Education, 2017
Danish PBL-based higher education institutions espouse the qualities of problem-based projects but actual practice shows a somewhat different picture. The predominant use of project catalogues and the formal requirements imposed by accreditation inhibit central intentions behind problem-based project work and there is now a danger of employing the…

McLoone, Seamus C.; Lawlor, Bob J.; Meehan, Andrew R. – Journal of Problem Based Learning in Higher Education, 2016
This paper describes how a circuits-based project-oriented problem-based learning educational model was integrated into the first year of a Bachelor of Engineering in Electronic Engineering programme at Maynooth University, Ireland. While many variations of problem based learning exist, the presented model is closely aligned with the model used in…

Ravn, Ole; Jensen, Annie Aarup – Journal of Problem Based Learning in Higher Education, 2016
In this article we discuss the contemporary conditions for running the Aalborg Problem Based Learning-model (PBL). We try to pinpoint key characteristics of these conditions emphasising Lyotard's conception of knowledge production referred to as the move towards a postmodern condition for knowledge. Through discussions of this alleged condition…

Jensen, Annie Aarup; Lund, Birthe – Journal of Problem Based Learning in Higher Education, 2016
Introduction of a pedagogical concept, Kubus, in a problem oriented learning context--analysed within the framework of an activity system--indicates what might happen when offering tools tempting to influence and regulate students' learning approach and hereby neglecting the importance of existing habits and values. Introduction of this new…

Dahl, Bettina; Kolmos, Anette – Journal of Problem Based Learning in Higher Education, 2015
At Aalborg University, engineering students spend half the time each semester in groups working on projects in a problem-based learning (PBL) curriculum. The projects are assessed through group exams, except for between 2007 and 2013 when the law forbade group-based project exams. Prior to 2007, a survey showed that students preferred the…
