Since , Hong Kong universities have established their own community college to provide a second chance for individuals to further studies in universities or gain work skills to facilitate their return to the society. Among all approaches, project-based learning is the most popular approach in English language learning in community colleges because the traditional teaching methods did not work well on passive and dependent Chinese students. The findings show that students have developed reading, writing, and research skills through group projects, and the language teacher, feedback, and collaboration are vital to the success of project-based learning. Chapter Preview Top Literature Review The literature review starts with meaning and purpose of project-based learning put forward by various educators. The next section examines the benefits of using project-based learning as an alternative learning approach. Lastly, an overview of research in project work internationally and in local universities is discussed to provide the research grounding and justification for this study.

Publications Adult learning covers the entire spectrum of what we learn after leaving initial education and training. This includes work- and career-oriented learning, obtaining new qualifications, up-skilling or re-skilling for employment, but also learning for personal development and active citizenship. Therefore, European education and training policy increasingly focuses on adult learning. A major concern is tackling unemployment and raising the adult participation rate in learning, particularly of low-qualified adults and older citizens.
Problem-based learning is an instructional strategy that focuses on actively engaging learners through the process of problem-solving. Within adult education, learners take on an active role in the learning process and must use their prior skills, knowledge, and experiences to construct, design, and develop solutions to problems typically encountered in real-world scenarios Savery, Originally designed and implemented with a relatively linear and rigid structure, problem-based learning in adult education has developed and evolved into an instructional methodology that primarily focuses on learners and their learning process as they work through real-world problems and challenges.
