New research project: Creative Learning (by Doing)

Teaching and researching with PBL: Integrating students in research and teaching.

This project is developing new tool to integrate students from Tourism Studies and Global Refugee Studies in developing new ways of using the problem-based –learning (PBL) model to transform the project based learning model and create creative ways of integrating students in teaching methods and research projects.

During field-trips students will work with different actors (NGOs, villages and communities) to gather material for reports on how actors can develop and implement tourism and/or development projects. Most countries in the Global South are integrating tourism – and especially sustainable tourism – in their development plans.  This project will be incorporate results from students’ and staffs’ field work into creating new teaching material, and at the same time it will establish a platform where researchers and students establish learning processes that are based on co-creation.

The project will last for two years and the material collected and results produced during the project will be presented during seminars and in journal articles.
