Learning by design

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


One way of engaging students in science-based learning uses contextual collaborative assignments in which students create solutions for socio-technical problems together with other students. The Science Created by You (SCY) project delivers learning environments (‘missions’) that offer students these opportunities. This chapter describes how SCY missions are designed to accomplish this and sketches the obstacles that need to be overcome to upscale "SCY-like'learning experiences.
