Cunningham, Ben – Journal of Problem Based Learning in Higher Education, 2018
To promote the development of greater creativity in my students' design work, I created an online tool--called Reflective Inquiry (RI)--that accompanies all of my open-ended assignments and that I require students to submit with each project. The RI is composed of a series of prompts that students must respond to, almost daily, to explain and…

Shanks, Michael; Svabo, Connie – Journal of Problem Based Learning in Higher Education, 2018
The notion of scholartistry, hybrid scholarship-arts practice, is introduced by situating it in the academic literature on research methodology. The article offers dynamic, dialogical exemplification and demonstration; it takes the form of a conversation among the visitors to an imaginary exhibition of scholartistic artifacts. Several examples of…

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…
