Abstract

As a means to produce highly sought after graduates, education institutions are
now turning to Project-Based Learning (PjBL). The road to a successful
implementation of PjBL at the institutional level is lined with challenges and has
deterred many. One of the major challenges is the number of projects needed to
sustain such an implementation. As a means to overcome this, an integrated PjBL
framework is proposed. It is observed that this framework makes it very obvious
to staff working on a research project that they could leverage on students in the
various design modules by carving out different aspects of their research projects
into smaller projects that could be offered as student projects. In doing so, staff
research workload and the need to develop projects to support PjBL are no longer
seen as separate workload but are synergistic.
