Traditional learning in classroom-based education is being challenged by the ever-increasing complexity in our lives and societies. Research in learning methods have opened new vistas in Project-Based Learning. Project-based learning focuses on developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills in the students. It’s an inquiry-based method of active learning that solves problems given as projects to students. In short, we can say “Project-Based Learning integrates knowing and doing” when students apply what they know to solve authentic problems with intentions to produce results that matter. A project has scope of work, resources, and planning activities to execute and manage resources to get the desired results. In the present world that is full of ever-increasing complexity, project-based learning is preparing students to solve real-world problems.

This six-week Project-based learning (PBL) course, involves role-playing, real-world scenarios, writing, reading, assessments, audiences, real-world expertise, research skills, comprehension skills, presentation skills, and collaboration skills. It calls on students to define, solve, and present a problem. It requires authentic thought, reflection, and questioning—and the results are incredible.
