Producción científica: Capítulo del libro/informe/acta de congresoCapítulo de librorevisión exhaustiva


A PBL interdisciplinary course introduces a deeper challenge than a regular PBL course for setting an evaluation system that allows to assess student academic achievements in different areas such as cognitive and soft skills.
The objective of the paper is to discuss a guided assessment protocol that is useful for students evaluation in an interdisciplinary PBL course as well as to evaluate the course. The article suggests complementary evaluations from facilitators, experts, and students. Therefore, the innovative response to an interdisciplinary PBL course assessment is to apply a mix-strategy, based on two types of evaluation such as (i) Hetero evaluation and (ii) Self assessment, each one includes different strategies (i.e. world cafe, logbook), and instruments (i.e. professors and experts student evaluation, entry and exit quizzes).
The article is based on the design and implementation of an interdisciplinary PBL course called Sustainable Cities Management given at the undergraduate level in Universidad del Pacífico (Lima-Perú). The course goal is to propose an innovative solution to an environmental-urban problem in a specific district in Lima Metropolitan Area.
