Much of the education at TU/e is project-based learning, usually DBL (design-based learning). Students work in groups where it is important that they develop their professional skills. Students learn from each other by discussing the subject matter. They come to practical agreements and solve problems as a team to come to a final product.

IT tools can be very useful when supervising group work. For instance, by allowing students to provide feedback to each other and to practice meeting and conversational techniques.
