A lot of curricula in higher education depend on Project Based Learning. This provides students with a setting which (slightly) resembles their future way of working: in teams, in projects. The rojects have increasingly a real problem-owner, so students are highly motivated to perform and provide a solution. Ate Utrecht University of Applied Sciences (UUAS), one of the used methods for Project Based Learning is based on Design Research. This method has been developed in close cooperation with other institutes. During the development of the method a majority of the tutors involved noted that most students jumped into the project even when the problem and the criteria for a solution were not clear.
