Columbus evaluating E+ CityLab Caribbean Project

16 July 2018

Columbus continues to expand its expertise to other regions within America. This time Columbus will be the external evaluator in the CityLab Caribbean, an Erasmus+ project born from the former CityLab Latin America project that promotes the implementation of Problem Based Learning methodologies in Universities to co-create solutions for cities challenges. 3 Columbus’ member institutions are part of this adapted version of the project in the Caribbean: University of Antwerpen, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and Politécnico di Torino.

Daniel Samoilovich, Columbus’ Executive Director, and Kelly Henao, Project Manager, attended a technical workshop on Problem Based Learning – PBL - from June 27th to 30th in the University of Technology in Kingston, Jamaica. During this workshop, Columbus had the opportunity to present the approach that will be used to evaluate the project during all its implementation. 

The workshop at large aimed to exchange and discuss teaching experiences, to select best practices, to develop a common understanding of PBL, resulting in the development of the PBL guidelines for the implementation of the CityLab modules in the HEI’s in the Caribbean involved in the project.
