The project team will improve cross-disciplinary, collaborative, and geographically distributive project-based learning (PBL) by creating an innovative, computer-mediated learning experience between students and professionals working in the fields of architecture, engineering and construction management (AEC.) Faculty and researchers from Stanford, KTH, Chalmers and the IT University of Göteborg will design, implement, test, deploy and evaluate a learning interaction experience (“The Fishbowl”) as a pedagogical intervention to support knowledge transfer from professionals to students. These competencies include alternative ways to solve problems, inquiry and negotiation skills, and probing the boundaries between disciplines. Deliverables from this project will include a tested and evaluated pedagogic model, an ICT-augmented workspace, deployed and tested in PBL at Stanford, KTH, Chalmers and IT Göteborg, the implementation of the pedagogy and ICT in an AEC Teamwork course offered in spring 2006, evaluation of learning workspaces, and student learning and performance assessments.
