Students conduct interviews as a part of many Project Based Learning experiences. In some cases, these interviews inform a design thinking process, in which students are working to identify the needs of a “client” or audience in order to inform a design, solution, or communication strategy.
Throughout a project—particularly during the build knowledge and develop and critique phases—students are engaged in extended work time to complete project tasks.
As students work together on projects, they learn valuable skills for collaborating, managing group dynamics and conflict, and building on one another’s strengths.
