Abstract:The traditional education usually falls short on the aspects of learning and acquiring knowledge about communication, problem solving, positive attitudes and behaviours, adaptability and working with others. Project and problem based learning models have been designed to target these specific needs that are required in the work field.The question under investigation in this research is which processing and regulation strategies are most successful for higher learning outcomes in a project course within project and problem based learning in a TOM-module at the University of Twente? Students, first and second years, of various studies at the University of Twente were asked to fill out a questionnaire about their processing strategies, regulation strategies and motivation. Background variables such as age, gender, study year and self-efficacy were also collected in this questionnaire. These variables will be used to see which of them have an explanatory value on the learning outcomes. The learning outcomes of project problem based education are skills which students need to attain and use. The learning outcomes will be measured with project grades of students in this research. A factor analysis has been conducted to check the validity of the data. Next a correlation analysis and multiple regression analyses have been done to analyze the influence of the processing strategies, regulation strategies and motivation on the learning outcomes. The analyses showed that only processing strategies have a significant influence on the learning outcomes and other strategies, which were expected to have a positive influence, were not significant.
