Wallace, Maria F. G.; Webb, Angela W.
Journal of College Science Teaching, v46 n2 p47-55 2016
In the engineering field, problem- and project-based learning, both of which are often referred to as PBL, are the dominant instructional models called for by accreditation agencies. The aim of this qualitative case study is to analyze and capture a holistic perspective of PBL course design and its implementation in two communication-intensive undergraduate engineering courses.
