CONNECTING NORTH AND SOUTH THROUGH CHALLENGEDRIVEN EDUCATION

A. Rosén, A. Högfeldt, A. Lantz, L. Gumaelius, R. Wyss, M. Bergendahl, et al, et al (2018).  CONNECTING NORTH AND SOUTH THROUGH CHALLENGEDRIVEN EDUCATION. 17.

This paper contributes with a north-south perspective on the ongoing enhancement of engineering education for sustainable development by giving insights in and results from implementation of challenge driven education (CDE) through joint efforts by the KTH Royal Institute of Technology, the University of Dar es Salaam (UDSM) and other African partner universities. CDE is explained as an evolution of PBL for building learning experiences around societal challenges, engaging external stakeholders, and developing students’ abilities to contribute to sustainable development. A case study is presented where students’, teachers’ and challenge owners’ perceptions of a challenge driven approach in engineering education are explored and key drivers and barriers for implementing CDE are clarified.
