Incorporating active/cooperative learning into traditional instruction can be a useful pedagogical tool to help students collectively work on a project inside and outside of class time. They can also be held responsible to finish the work if they don't show enough interest to complete the tasks. The learner-centered pedagogy of incorporating projects into formal instruction is assessed and some observations pertaining to this experience are cited. To achieve this goal, a design project is chosen at the beginning of the course in order to motivate and verify/go over course content and to make students work in teams. The experience will be measured by student's responses to a survey and their ability to complete a wide variety of tasks related to the subject matter.
