Experiential Learning, or…

problem-based learning, or project-based learning, or, hands-on learning…

More and more universities are promoting hands-on, multi-disciplinary learning experiences that balance knowledge with skills development to better prepare students for jobs. My colleagues and I have been promoting this kind of learning since the late ’90s… I am so glad that finally it looks that universities are transforming their curricula and learning experiences to bridge the gap between how we teach and how engineering is practiced.

Take a look at our workshops descriptions here.
