Project Based Courses

Well I'm just wrapping up another course on AutoCAD 3D and I just can't get over how much students get out of project based courses. This one is a 75 hour course where a student develops their own project in 3D. Each and every time I do a course like this it's amazing to see how all the theory they have learned in previous courses really sinks in while doing their projects. On top of that, problem solving really goes to a new level. Students regularly get stuck, and when I'm able to help them out of a jam this gets immediate retention.
