The combination of artistic practice with scientific inquiry has a long tradition that dates back to Ancient Greece. Despite a long and rich history, there are surprisingly few established models for combining academic and artistic methodologies in higher education.
This is a call for papers for a special issue on “Sustainability and Sustainable Cities” to appear in Journal of Problem Based Learning in Higher Education (JPBLHE). The purpose of this Special Issue is twofold. It aims to collect the best contributions presented at the final Conference of the Citylab LA project, while remaining open to the entire PBL research community, inviting articles that deal with teaching and research within a PBL environment related to sustainability and/or sustainable cities.
This is a call for papers for the peer reviewed Journal of Problem Based Learning in Higher Education (JPBLHE) to be published in 2017. JPBLHE provides an opportunity for scholars from all disciplines to publish. We have just published the latest issue of the journal: Special issue: blended learning in architecture and design education. Many thanks to the authors and reviewers for their contributions to the issue which is available at the journal site. The journal is gaining recognition and for this reason we are constantly looking for dedicated reviewers. Therefore, if you are doing research in PBL and would like to contribute to the consolidation of the journal please contact journal editor Thomas Ryberg, firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would like to invite all interested colleagues to a new meeting in the network on first year PBL. In light of the presentations and discussions at the last meeting, the topic of our next meeting is “supervision of projects at first year”. Thus, we will address and discuss topics such as: what is the role and responsibilities of the supervisor at first year, how do students experience supervision at first year, what is the trademarks of supervisors at first year, what should be the focal points in supervising groups at first year, how can supervisors motivate students? The meeting is organized around some of these questions, which we will discuss in smaller groups.
On the 4th of May at ‘University Teaching Day’ Diana Stentoft and Erik Laursen from the PBL Academy hosted a well-attended workshop that addressed PBL and the creation of academic progression through education. In their presentation, Erik and Diana spoke on different approaches regarding progression. On this matter, they presented two models.
March 31, 2017, the PBL Academy was invited to the half-year meeting for student guidance arranged by the central student guidance office. The theme for the presentation was how study-guides can help students overcome challenges of PBL. In the presentation the focus was not on providing tools and tricks for PBL as the study guidance office has in fact provided a “tool-box” for student counsellors and students
