Why Us? Reality Project Based Leadership and Education
Higher education in the 21st century is impelled by competitive global forces that require pedagogies, technologies, structures, and research to become truly innovative for dynamic progress.
While the United States has witnessed an unprecedented expansion of its educational competencies and skill bases over the past decades, there seems to be a persistent gap between the kind of knowledge and skills that are most in demand in the workplace, and those that training systems continue to provide. Therefore, in a rapidly evolving educational ecosystem, it is important to ensure that education and training focus on closing this employability gap between precise workplace needs, and the content, quality, and validity of educational programs geared for the workplace.
With innovative technology as a key economic driver to close the prevalent skills and employment gaps in the economy, it is necessary to streamline and focus the process of technology diffusion in higher education. In this context, the triple constraints of time, cost, and quality that comprise the core parameters of project management can be gainfully applied for improved processes and positive results. This is because project management (PM) has inherent efficiencies: a rigorously planned approach; goal-orientation; resource optimization; time compression; and, phase-by-phase progress toward economical execution and successful realization of project goals. PM could therefore be a critical contributor to optimizing project-based learning (PBL) efficiencies.
For us, project-based learning means creating learning experiences that engage the heart, hands, and heads of all students. Through our automated project-based learning, students tend to benefit from the following:
- Emotionally Engaged: The project is relevant to students. They see how their work will impact the things and people they care about.
- Actively Engaged: Students take an active role throughout the learning process. They design solutions, build prototypes, create models, pitch ideas, and more.
- Cognitively Engaged: Throughout the project, students construct knowledge and solve problems, gaining the key knowledge, skills, and understandings to be successful in school and beyond.
All programs are instructed in English or Chinese Onsite or Online.
