Project-Based Learning and Why it Works: A Student Perspective
One of the 14 engineering grand challenges is related to advanced personalised learning and it is defined as ‘Instruction can be individualised based on learning styles, speeds, and interests to make learning more reliable’. Project-based learning at Taylor’s University School of Engineering seems to lend itself as being able to provide the flexibility for instruction to be based on individual’s background, learning speed, styles, interests and preferences (Mushtak and Tien in J Eng Sci Technol, 80–86, 2013, ). In this chapter, reason of project-based learning is an effective tool for personalised learning as discussed.
