Research supports the value of interdisciplinary programs, however, there are relatively few interdisciplinary courses at the undergraduate level at the JIBC. The purpose of this study is to share successes and challenges from applying project based learning (PBL) in a multi-access inter-disciplinary course.

PBL is a comprehensive approach to teaching and learning that is designed to engage students in the investigation of authentic problems. Learning experiences are designed to enable students reach higher cognitive levels of problem solving and evaluation, while at the same time improving professional skills such as critical thinking, teamwork and communication.

Multi-access learning is “…a framework for enabling students in both face-to-face and online contexts to personalize learning experiences while engaging as a part of the same course.” (Irvine, Code, & Richards 2013).

The goals of this study are to:
  • Improve students’ learning by incorporating feedback provided by students, faculty and sponsors (community partners)
  • Document lessons learned for future adaptation by other faculty
