Abstract

This article describes the piloting of the Learning by Developing (LbD) action model in the UK. The purpose of the pilot is to study how a pedagogical method based on the LbD can be introduced in computing students in the UK. The LbD action model has long been used in Finland at Laurea University of Applied Sciences (Laurea), but now the LbD has been piloted in a UK-based institution in a project-based study module. The main purpose was to study, through self-assessment, how the competence of computing students develops during the study module. In addition, the study reviews an action research analysis of the responses of lecturers and the project client. In addition, the pedagogical expert of the institution has been interviewed as background research to obtain sufficient information about the initial situation at Robert Gordon University (RGU).
