In time the approach has increasingly focused on stimulating and motivating the self-managed learning (individually or in groups). Students focus on achieving the final product of the learning and are guided and stimulated to collect background knowledge in ways that fit personal learning styles. Methods: lectures, discussions, assignments, calculations, simulation games, field visits (physical presence courses), stakeholder interviews and presentations.
