Project education in Denmark
In Denmark, projects have been used as an educational method for the past fifteen to twenty years and introduced throughout the Danish educational system from elementary schools to universities. As an educational method, the object is not so much the finished product but rather the total development of the individual participants' qualifications. This article describes the nature of Danish project education at Roskilde University Centre, a leader in education development. Among the issues discusses are the three principles of the project process, eight project phases, three main issues for project management, and the application of all these in the commercial, industrial, and administrative sectors. Particular emphasis is placed upon problem orientation and formulation, continuous internal evaluation, and the supervision of projects by qualified tutors.
