Project Based LessonsandProblem Based Lessons

While Project-Based Learning and Problem-Based Learning share much in common, they are two distinct approaches to learning. In Project-Based Learning, students have a great deal of control of the project they will work on and what they will do in the project. The project may or may not address a specific problem. In Problem-Based Learning, a specific problem is specified by the course instructor. Students work individually or in teams over a period of time to develop solutions to this problem.
