"Construction Law: Interesting? About as Interesting as Watching Paint Dry!” A Reflection on Changing Construction Students' Attitudes toward Construction Law

This article concludes that: (1) undergraduate students' attitudes to construction law can be changed by changing teaching; (2) meaningful and appropriate problems can enhance students' experiences at universities; (3) students' attitudes are more likely to be changed if they can see the relevance to their chosen professional lives; and (4) assessment should be constructively aligned to intended learning outcomes. This article is limited to a study carried out in one department within one school of engineering. As such, the author must be cautious before making any claims that using problem-based learning (PBL) in construction law in all schools of engineering can change students' attitudes.
