The subject project management is relatively new and has increased in stature over the years as its use has expanded across disciplines from construction based projects to initiatives that have scope, time and cost constraints. Developing effective pedagogical approaches is key to the development of the subject. This article highlights some significant factors and suggests examples of best practice based on qualitative data collected from teaching and learning experiences gained at the University of the Western Cape (UWC), Bellville, South Africa. The article follows a reflective approach and uses multiple project cases to propose areas of focus for teaching project management using the project-based learning (PBL) approach.
