The effective teaching methods for the next generations of pragmatic students and
teachers are evolving towards much greater involvement on all sides, attempting to bridge real
life and the academe in many innovative ways. After introducing and validating the MultiCreation approach in teaching/learning for business-academia collaboration, where multiple disciplines, diverse profiles of students, professors and managers took various roles to address relevant business issues, we were encouraged to expand its applicability beyond the business world -
into societal problems. We retained the problem-based and participatory learning, but shifted the
positioning of the problem towards traffic safety of children in primary schools - incorporating
economical, project, managerial, traffic engineering, logistical, regulatory and governance issues.
By including two primary schools, collaborating with their principals, advisory teams and teachers, as well as children and parents, in two different cities, we aimed to provide complete research, engineering and education for the stakeholders so that the schools could just hand in the
documentation to the relevant municipal bodies to be acted upon effectuation. The involved students came from two faculties - of economics and traffic engineering, steered by three university
professors on the subjects of project management and basic and advanced techniques for traffic
management. The blended learning components took place as prescribed in the MultiCreation
approach, during two semesters of two academic years. combined countermeasures and solutions. The MultiCreation approach has been enhanced in its components and workflow and its
effectiveness is validated in multi-stakeholder environment of direct and indirect educational
