My research focuses on the development of pedagogical approaches that enable reflection during project-based-learning (PBL) design experiences in engineering deisgn education. During episodes of experiential learning, such as group PBL in engineering design education, students construct new knowledge (that is they learn) by reflecting on their lived experience. More accurately, they reflect on their ‘perceptions’ of that experience, meaning that the prior experience, knowledge, and worldview of the students will have a strong influence on the outcomes of learning from experience. The cognitive structure of engineering design students is heavily influenced by the positivist paradigm of engineering science, and so ...
