SAE Australia implemented collaborative Project Based Learning (PBL) into its creative media degrees in 2014. Designed as an effective and engaging approach which would take students from foundation skills to the threshold of professional entry level, Project Based Learning looked to integrate knowledge and skill development, individualised and group learning, mentorship, attitudinal and communication skills.

Three years on, Dr Colin Webber reports on the impact of Project Based Learning in a number of areas, including the quality of student work, pass and retention rates, faculty training and development, and the benefits and pitfalls of PBL in their context.

This session will be of interest not only to those of you currently integrating PBL into your teaching approach at SAE, but also for academic staff interested in alternative approaches to designing and delivering curriculum.
