By way of introduction to the course author and presenter Bernard Dady reflects on three personal engagements with project-based learning. Firstly, as a teacher of humanities subjects in the 1980s, then as a learning space design adviser in the ‘noughties’and finally as an education technology consultant between 2010 and 2019.
- Do you recall learning through a project when you were at school? Was it part of the formal curriculum or an extra-curricular activity?
- What is your dominant pedagogic approach?
- How does working through projects sit with your subject specialism? Is it integral or peripheral?
- What has been your exposure to, or experience with, related methodologies such as flipped, enquiry, resource or problem based learning?
