The Technological and Higher Education Institute of Hong Kong emphasises the provision of Work-integrated Learning (WIL) and Project-Based Learning (PBL) opportunities by exposing students early to the world of work, thereby nurturing work-ready graduates. The Product Design (PD) Programme is enhancing work-based learning by infusing ‘industry engagement’ into its core curriculum. During ‘industry engagement’, students will work on works tasks set out by real industry partners in an authentic context, including through real interactions with industry partners and tackling challenges of the projects in real-world context. This poster explores the process of using 'Gold Standard' PBL as a means to enhance ‘industry engagement’ and student directed learning in Product Design.
