Abstract: The design and build Warman competition at the University of Adelaide is run as a compulsory part of level 2 Design Practice. To achieve the best educational outcome, the course has been structured to incorporate project-based learning by providing support in the form of lectures and tutorials to guide and support students through the project. To further increase the effectiveness of this teaching method undergraduate students, who were winners of the past competition, were employed as peer tutors. This particular aspect of the learning process has proven to be immensely successful with these tutors managing to provide support and stimulate peer enthusiasm as was reflected in many high quality designs and unprecedented learning outcomes.
