Abstract

Problem based learning (PBL) has been introduced at Victoria University (VU) into its undergraduate engineering programs. PBL represents a radical change and requires substantial effort and commitment to adapt traditional practices in response to the challenges of PBL and related communication needs of a diverse student population. Furthermore, professional bodies, such as Engineers Australia, place increasing demands on communication as a crucial engineering graduate attribute.
