Abstract

This paper contributes to the discussion on possibilities of changing an institutional semester structure in a PBL-environment which might open up for new ways of integrating courses and student projects. The structuring of individual courses and semester projects are creating the framework for developing both disciplinary knowledge and PBL competences, but integrating and applying the knowledge from course disciplines into a project seems difficult for both students and teachers. A research project “Future Directions for PBL in a digital age” will therefore experiment with how course and project work can become more integrated, this by developing a flipped semester. A conceptual process design for changing the structure at 4th semester, Medialogy to a flipped semester is outlined and concerns and possibilities of expanding and changing a hole semester structure is discussed.
