Abstract:In modern education, teachers and students are urged to use learning experiences for making valuable contributions to society. However, to make such contributions, students must develop their sense of impact, a perception of power to make a difference. The educational framework of Challenge-based Learning (CBL) has great potential of strengthening the sense of impact in students. Nonetheless, CBL education needs to be carefully designed. Therefore, this study formed design requirements and propositions for CBL courses to foster students’ sense of impact. First, the analysis of the application of CBL features in three UT CBL cases was administered. To support the case analysis, Mild, Moderate, and Intense CBL levels were defined for the components of Van den Akker’s Curricular Spider Web model. Then, students’ insights on how CBL courses can be designed to support their sense of impact were gathered through a reflection report analysis and interviews guided by the students’ responses to quantitative surveys. The data analysis resulted in preliminary design requirements and propositions, which were validated and refined according to what the teachers of the studied cases described as feasible in evaluation interviews. The final requirements and propositions are offered as support for the future design of CBL courses.
