Within project-based learning (PBL) courses, students often engage in peer-learning teams to solve real-world project scenarios. PBL is an ideal and increasingly common pedagogical approach in courses which develop skills in critical thinking, design, and problem solving, such as engineering. However, while the benefits of PBL are well established, substantial issues remain around efficient and effective implementation in tertiary courses; it is often difficult to achieve intended learning and teaching outcomes within reasonable academic workloads. From a student’s perspective, PBL courses may challenge them in ways they may not have experienced in more traditional learning environments; for some, it may put them outside of their comfort zone. For instructors, creating a rich PBL environment is likely to be time intensive compared with more traditional pedagogies; especially when students are new to this approach, they require substantial support to understand expectations and learn in this way.
