What do you see as the most beneficial aspect of WPI's project-based learning approach to education?


Frederick Bianchi: It has many characteristics to it. The most positive is it acknowledges that diversified learning is how things should be functioning. The idea that one person has the solution to problems is outdated. You need to take a problem and view and tackle it from many different angles—not just from one area of expertise. Working in interdisciplinary teams allows for more innovation and more risk taking, which increases the opportunity for better results.
