Co-Creation in PBL Project Work

  • Ole Ravn
Part of the Creative Education Book Series book series (CREA)


When searching among research papers using the terms “co-creation” and “higher education” you are very likely to stumble upon insights about the marketisation of education (see for example Fagerstrøm & Ghinea, 2013) or the “value co-creation” generated by integrating students’ assessment feedback on teaching in order to develop better teaching approaches (see for example Díaz-Méndez et al., 2012).
