In the chapter Design and Co-design of Project-organized Studies, Jørgen Lerche Nielsen and Lars Birch Andreasen discuss how professors and students together design study processes that may foster students’ engagement, reflection, and creative thinking. The chapter’s case stems from the Danish Master program in ICT and Learning (MIL). The problem- and project-based approaches are seen as ways of meeting the challenges that the educational system faces due to the change from an industrial to a knowledge-based society. Unlike a classic curriculum-oriented model, project work and problem-based approaches are open-ended and directed at handling unknown and dynamic processes. This is relevant for study programs where students are involved in self-directed study practices, and where there is a need for collaboration, flexibility and implementation of technologies. In the situated context of problem-based learning, the chapter discusses how students can plan and continually redesign their project work.
