UNESCO/IHE - Problem-based innovative learning: Sint Maarten Group Work
Within the UNESCO-IHE Master of Science programs, the group work is the last 3-week module of the taught part of the programs. In the group work, students from the different specializations of the MSc program in Urban Water and Sanitation (UWS) work together on a joint project. The UWS group work is centred on the real-life case of the Island of Sint Maarten in the Caribbean.
Students are provided with relevant information and data, and expected to identify and analyse water-related problems and issues and propose viable, integrated approaches and solutions. Working on a real-life case enhances the learning experience, and adds to the attraction for the students. On the other hand, it also makes this not only a purely educational exercise, as the results of their work may be of practical use to the Government of Sint Maarten.
