Abstract

Recently, the Project Based Learning (PBL) has been widely spread in engineering education all over the world. However, in our study in Egypt in 2011, the authors found that learners faced to the difficulty to adapt them into new learning approach, and pointed out the necessity of the course design with consideration of leaners‘ learning experience. In this work, the authors discuss the design of the PBL course in Egypt through making comparison analysis of the learners‘ learning style between undergraduate and graduate students based on Kolb‘s learning style theory. The survey revealed that undergraduate and graduate students have a significant different learning style, and the authors suggested the necessity of the design the course which enhances the Concrete Experience and Reflective Observation of learners.
