Enhancing Students' Engagement in Learning through a Formative E-Assessment Tool That Motivates Students to Take Action on Feedback
1 INTRODUCTION Students learn best when they are motivated to engage in learning activities, as Biggs & Tang (2007, p. 15) pointed out: how effectively we teach depends on how we encourage students to use the learning activities to achieve the...
From Representation to Construction: A Study of Graphic Skills in Students Newly Admitted to Architecture and Design Courses
1 INTRODUCTION Formal education tends to stress logical and verbal skills at the expense of other aspects of intelligence such as visual thinking. This, however, plays a decisive role in academic performance on technology and arts courses, as well...
Learning and Teaching Style Assessment for Improving Project-Based Learning of Engineering Students: A Case of United Arab Emirates University
1 INTRODUCTION University teaching requires the emergence and development of teaching methods consistent with the learning techniques of students (Ewell, 1997). Several teaching and learning approaches have been trialled, practiced and modified...
Reimagining Site-Walks: Sites for Rich Learning
1 INTRODUCTION 1.1 Professional and workplace learning Engineers are continually confronted with new challenges in their work, and it is a normal part of engineering practice to learn how to deal with them. The practice of engineering, like many...
Teaching Mechatronics with Tuned Problem-Based Projects
1 INTRODUCTION The process of balancing numerous competing functional requirements, limitations and tradeoffs in developing complex mechatronics systems embodies design synthesis. Though formalisations exist (Dym et al, 2005; Grimheden & Hanson,...
The Impact of Increasing Course Enrolment on Student Evaluation of Teaching in Engineering Education
1 INTRODUCTION Student evaluation of teaching (SET) has a long history, has grown in prevalence and importance over a period of decades, and is now commonplace in many universities internationally (Davies et al, 2007; Denson et al, 2010; Hulpiau...
Threshold Concepts in Undergraduate Engineering: Exploring Engineering Roles and Value of Learning
1 INTRODUCTION This is the second in a series of papers that explores students' development as engineers during the undergraduate engineering degree. As we have argued previously (Bennett & Male, 2014), engineering educators and their students...
Transferability of Practitioner-Focused Civil Engineering Capstone Design Courses: An Analysis for a US and New Zealand Approach
1 INTRODUCTION In spite of different accreditation bodies, both US and New Zealand (NZ) civil engineering education expects capstone design courses. Perhaps more so than in the other main engineering disciplines, an effective capstone design course...
Using Online and Multimedia Resources to Enhance the Student Learning Experience in a Telecommunications Laboratory within an Australian University
1 INTRODUCTION Various studies have investigated the use of the online delivery of laboratory material for enhancing the student learning experience in engineering (Alonso & Barreto, 2004; Kassim et al, 2004; Al-Dhaler, 2004; Hussmann et al,...
