Dan Greve MSc (1961) applies his expertise as an engineer, lecturer and educational designer within his doctoral research into Agile project-based teaching. He is intrigued by the extent to which this iterative, investigative way of working can equip engineering students for the complexities of professional practice.
His doctoral research focuses on how lecturers can develop Agile project-based learning (PBL), whereby students learn in an iterative, investigative way to create technical solutions in a complex, multidisciplinary environment. For his research into Agile PBL, he uses Scrum projects as a research environment.
"Agile is simple, the activity is complex"
Dan is intrigued by the influence that complexities in professional practice have on the chosen method of working and conducting research. He is inspired by complexity science and tries to make complex matters simple and manageable for students and lecturers.
