Using project based learning in a multi-access learning environment
JIBC is well known for the opportunities that the institution provides faculty, staff and students to innovate and adapt to new approaches to enhance teaching and learning (JIBC Relevant Focused Ready- Strategic Plan 2015-2020). Various research supports the value of interdisciplinary programs. However, despite its recognized value, there are relatively few interdisciplinary programs in our institution at the undergraduate level of studies. The learning environment at JIBC is changing rapidly and students are demanding increasing flexibility, mobility and shorter time periods to complete their credentials. The purpose of conducting this action research is to examine the teaching methods (pedagogies) used in the BUS-3110 course where both face-to-face students take the course at the same time as remote students. The research also examines the student’s level of learning experiences and engagement.
