Design Features for Project-Based Learning
Susan J. Wolff, Ed.D.

This publication is a condensed version of a doctoral research study by Susan Wolff entitled "Relationships among People and Spaces: Design Features for the Optimal Collaborative, Project-Based Learning Experience." Dr. George Copa, Oregon State University, was Wolff's major professor. Although the study was directed primarily at the community college level, the findings of the study are pertinent to all levels of education and have implications for physical learning environments for other types of active learning processes.
