MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this paper is to present the preliminary findings from implementing and evaluating a project-based learning example (The Animation Project). The idea of the project is to involve the students in producing learning aids in project management in the form of video animations of real-life project cases. This was done to create an authentic project experience of actual projects that has solutions that potentially could be implemented. The preliminary findings suggest that the project adequately satisfied its intended objectives, in particular, the project provided students with an opportunity to understand and relate better to various project management concepts. Results also suggest that involving students in authentic project assignments may have positive impact on motivation and dedication in the project.
