The objective of this workshop is to investigate and compare principles and experiences of the PBL and CDIO frameworks. This will potentially indicate what an institution experienced in one of the communities can learn from the other “camp”, as well as provide a chart for anyone who wishes to learn about any of these models. CDIO and PBL will be compared in terms of history, organization of community, educational principles and conceptual framework, model of change, variation in implementation, body of research, extent of dissemination (world map), and relation to certification and evaluation. Finally, it is suggested that the two approaches have very much in common and can be combined, and especially that the practitioners have much to learn from each others’ experiences through a dialogue between the communities.
