A Project-Based Learning Approach: A Case Study in China
Xu, Yueyu; Liu, Wenqi
Asia Pacific Education Review, v11 n3 p363-370 Sep 2010
The goal of higher education is to cultivate graduates' creative capability, critical thinking skills, and other professional qualities. This paper describes a project-based course and its application in graduate-level education. This course is to improve students' creative capability, collaboration capability, and self-direction. It includes many new elements such as project-oriented, up-to-date textbooks and research results, and peer-review grading systems. Compared with conventional courses, the evidence suggests that the project-based learning approaches used in this study will be quite successful for providing postgraduate students with more autonomy and creative learning experience.
