An Experiment in Project Based Learning: A Comparison of Attitudes between Russia and America As part of the Scientific School on “Higher Technical Education as an Instrument of Innovative Development”, we gave a workshop on Project Based Learning using the “Build a Skyscraper” project to Russian educators from ___________________________ University. Subsequently this same workshop was given to a similar group of American students and educators from _________________ University. This project is intended for second year students in engineering. Skills to be exercised during this project include team building and interpersonal skills, project management, the formation of customers’ requirement and complex problem solving. An assessment tool was developed to gather feedback on the workshop and the experience. This paper concentrates on the assessment data and discusses interesting and surprising differences in attitudes as well as similarities between these two audiences.
