Dimensions of problem based learning - dialogue and online collaboration in projects

Lars Birch Andreasen, Jørgen Lerche Nielsen

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articlepeer-review


The article emphasizes four perspectives as central to a contemporary approach to problem- and project-based learning: the exploration of problems, projects as a method, online collaboration, and the dialogic aspect of students’ project work. A specific focus is on how the problem- and project-based learning approach developed in Denmark historically and theoretically, and how it unfolds today discussed through a case of the Danish Master programme in ICT and Learning (MIL), focusing on changes in the roles of teachers as supervisors, and the involvement of students in course and project activities.
