The Problem of Projects: Understanding the Theoretical Underpinnings of Project-Led PBL
Hanney, Roy; Savin-Baden, Maggi
London Review of Education, v11 n1 p7-19 2013
For many years there has been a sharp division between project-based learning, and problem-based learning, with the former adopting a more technical rationalist approach while the latter adopts a more Socratic or dialogic approach. This article argues that current notions of project-based learning are too narrow and that combining the two approaches will improve student engagement and criticality. This article begins by outlining the key differences between project-based, and problem-based learning, suggesting a new constellation. It then provides an exemplar in the form of a case study that sought to undertake such a combination, and reports on implications for practice. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
