Arantes do Amaral, Joao Alberto; Petroni, Liége Mariel; Hess, Aurélio – Journal of Problem Based Learning in Higher Education, 2016
The ability to raise funds is a skill that most modern project managers need. While a good deal of literature exists on the strategies NGOs employ to raise funds for their operations, less attention has been paid to the strategies used by students involved in Project-Based Learning courses that often partner with NGOs. Fundraising is an important…

Valtanen, Juri – Journal of Problem Based Learning in Higher Education, 2014
Question-asking is essential for being, knowing and learning. However, classroom research has confirmed that students do not ask questions spontaneously and teachers ask the most questions, mainly low-level ones. The purpose of this qualitative case-study is to investigate question-asking during problem-based learning (PBL) tutorials, a subject…
