A DECADE OF PROJECT BASED DESIGN EDUCATION – IS THERE A FUTURE?
The paper identifies the value of the project-based learning in the aspects of: (1) defined set of skills students perceive as relevant for their transition from theory to practice; (2) identified gap between educational approach to design and design practice. To achieve this, qualitative and quantitative means of data collection have been implemented. Results of project-based learning revealed student lack many communication and teamwork skills despite sufficient technical knowledge. Although academic staff is aware of that, they miss sufficient support from governments and practitioners.
