Project-based learning (PBL) facilitates learning through the inclusion of projects in classes. Our project assists Dr. Mohamed Essaaidi in diagnosing the current state of teaching pedagogies used at L'École Nationale Supérieure d'Informatique et d'Analyse des Systèmes (ENSIAS) to provide recommendations on how ENSIAS can implement PBL. We interviewed and surveyed faculty and students at ENSIAS to identify challenges faced by various stakeholders and current PBL approaches used at the school. From our data, we recommended for ENSIAS to form a PBL faculty committee, lead a training workshop on PBL, develop a first-year project-based course, and complete course and project team evaluations. These recommendations will aid in the potential development of PBL at ENSIAS.
