Project-Based Learning in Colleges of Business: Is It Enough to Develop Educated Graduates?
Smith, Penny Pence; Gibson, Lindsey A.
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n145 p41-47 Spr 2016
This chapter focuses on project-based learning in colleges of business, a concept that offers the student a "hands-on" approach to knowledge by working on actual projects with business community organizations. However, it may take more than such partnerships to assure graduates become "educated people" as well as those vocationally trained. Solutions to balancing theoretical and universal knowledge with practical application are explored.
