Abstract

Problem-based learning (PBL) is becoming increasingly popular in design educations, but how is it
taught and practiced? This paper presents a case study of a three-day workshop that has the purpose of
introducing PBL to design students. A theoretical background on PBL and problems in design is
established and is backing up the case study. The study shows that design engineering and
architectural students without experience in PBL in general finds the approach to be beneficial when
working on a design challenge in a student team.

Keywords: PBL, problem statement, case study, foreign students
