Abstract: Project work is not only common in the workplace but also in language courses. The experience gained from working on projects can help one understand the appropriate and effective use of language skills. Empirical evidence has shown that project work can create contexts in which learners need to respond actively and engage in purposeful communication. In order to understand the dimensions of such a learning experience before discussing project work in learning, this paper reviews the current literature on the relationship between the learner and the learning context, commonly known as the ecology of learning. This paper also discusses and illustrates various pedagogical aspects of project work by means of a project-based course at university level.
