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…

Zwaal, Wichard; Otting, Hans – Journal of Problem Based Learning in Higher Education, 2016
The study focuses on the seven-step procedure (SSP) in problem-based learning (PBL). The way students apply the seven-step procedure will help us understand how students work in a problem-based learning curriculum. So far, little is known about how students rate the performance and importance of the different steps, the amount of time they spend…

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…

Murray-Harvey, Rosalind; Pourshafie, Tahereh; Reyes, Wilma Santos – Journal of Problem Based Learning in Higher Education, 2013
Group work, an essential component of learning and teaching in problem-based learning (PBL), is compromised if students' experiences of PBL are colored by dissatisfaction with the process or outcomes. For the potential benefits of PBL to be realized PBL group work must be genuinely collaborative to address students' personal and professional…
