Project-based learning for sustainable development

Nation, Marcia L. "Project-based learning for sustainable development." Journal of Geography 107.3 (2008): 102-111.

Project-based learning is a pedagogy that involves students in applying and developing theories, skills, and techniques to solve real world problems. Three faculty members used project-based learning to involve graduate students in an interdisciplinary seminar on sustainable development in Appalachian Ohio, which was convened under the auspices of the Appalachian Regional Commission's Appalachia Teaching Project. The process of presenting this course underlined the difficulties of interdisciplinary work as well as the opportunities and challenges inherent in involving students in authentic research with communities.
