Jigme Namgyel Engineering College, Royal University of Bhutan
Academic enhancement through meaningful teaching and learning approaches is vital in any educational institution. Achieving the aspiration for innovative approaches and pedagogy in teaching and learning needs continuity and variation depending on its learning environment, diverse learners and other relevant factors. This study focused on the ‘Strengthening Problem-Based learning in South Asian Universities (PBL South Asia)’ project which is co-financed by European Union. It is qualitative research that made use of published records from institution and government reports, media, and website along with relevant literature as the based-reference resources. More so, Jigme Namgyel Engineering College (JNEC) as one of the beneficiary partners of this project has its own pace of activities that were developed and materialized. The commitment and progress of the PBL South Asia project at JNEC was recorded in this study. It shows a significant progress on materializing ‘Capacity Building in Higher Education’ in realizing the vision of the college to be one of the recognized institutions of applied engineering, technology and management in the region.
