Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperConference paperpeer-review


Active and project-based learning (PBL) strategies provide a great means for students to enhance their learning and further develop critical engineering skills. In order to guide students to a higher level of learning, a critical reflection process has been incorporated into upper level and graduate civil engineering classes that utilize PBL. This paper presents a model for classroom practice for enhancing student skill development through critical reflection as part of PBL that is based on existing theory on learning.
