    Samenvatting

    Design-based Learning (DBL) is the educational approach within the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) (Wijnen, 2000) in which students work co-operatively and actively on multidisciplinary design projects guided by a tutor. In DBL the role of the tutor is essential as a facilitator of the learning process, as well as a subject matter specialist or as an assessor. However, the involvement of the tutor in supporting students depends not only on the character of the DBL projects but also on the level of competencies to be reached in each specific year of the Bachelor’s program. This paper describes the experiences with the role of the tutor in Design-based Learning within the Mechanical Engineering department at TU/e. Throughout the paper the differences in the tutor’s role are analyzed according to the nature of the students’ group work. Conclusions on the ideal role for the tutor suitable for the Mechanical Engineering education are presented. Keywords: design-based learning; role of the tutor; project work; collaborative learning.
