This chapter is aimed at supporting lecturers in universities and colleges who have begun or are considering introducing project or problem-based learning (PBL) for students’ learning. In order to keep up with rapid change and make the most of learning technologies as aids to both learning strategies, a range of practical insights based on research will be provided in sections, supplemented with a variety of examples of learning technology being infused into both strategies. The range provided are by no means exhaustive, and you may know of many more examples yourself. It is unlikely that any one student would experience all of these learning methods in a project or problem-based learning event, but they are provided for academics, thinking of remodelling courses or modules.
