Usually, a beginning activity in PBL is seeking available information relevant to the decision-making to configure the project-work. How students deal with that information has effects in both the learning outcomes and the project product. In this context, Aalborg University has structured the project-work to
students can learn through while working in the project. Students begin their undergraduate program learning how to work projects by an initial short project P0, followed by a more extended subject project P1, to be accomplished in about three-quarters of a semester. This study explores how students address
the project information when setting the project-work. 17 participants from two engineering programs answered open-ended interviews. Then, the study used a verbatim transcription by Thematic Analysis for code and correlations. The results indicate impacts in several features such as identification, search,
quality and share of information, among others as roles and task assignment.
