Project based learning: Civil Engineering Student's feedback (case study)


Project based learning is a challenging task, requiring expertise in the topic to be taught our learning is enhanced when the teacher is highly effective. As Students our learning is optimal when we are engaged in the learning process. The development of engineering school is critical for the future of the profession. School should be expected to gain pedagogical training through Projects based learning and as civil engineering students we want to talk about our Project based learning experience and the best example is the "urban planning and sustainable development" project. We will present a feedback as a first year of the Civil Engineering of the Private School of engineering and technologies (ESPRIT) students. We were able to participate throughout the first semester of the 2018-19 academic year in project that included workshops, tutorials, site visits, courses and in-situ work. The "Urban planning and Sustainable Development" project, which was part of an "Architecture and Urbanism" teaching unit, aims to bring together the different modules around a common project in order to allow students to grasp the complexity of engineering practice by understanding it in its entirety, to concretise and assimilate the different knowledge and know-how to acquire the targeted skills, as well as working on the aspect of being-well-being through different situations and modes of evaluation. Still in the framework of project-based learning, which adheres to the concept of active pedagogy deployed with the objective of targeting the skills required, the recourse to feedback to talk about the experience is necessary. The reflection around this participation and the commitment of the students accentuate the wish to make of us active actors and co-constructors in the process of learning. While offering us the opportunity to take a look at the approach developed, the methods used, the productions produced, the role and level of involvement of the actors concerned, as well as the means used. Our work traces the progress of the project "Urban Planning and Sustainable Development" from our point of view as students, we will present the pedagogy deployed in this project in our vision as students, we will discuss the innovative contributions of this project in terms of training and also on a personal and interpersonal level, we will also invoke the obstacles that we had to overtake. We will finally bring a critical look on the subject and propose the points that can be improved in this approach.
