Abstract

A research programme based on the pedagogic concept of Product Based Learning (PBL) is described. The similarity of this kind of learning to design learning provides an opportunity to observe design teams at work and to develop an instrumentation model to monitor their performance. Examples of some of the metrics developed are presented and discussed.
