We are teaming up with Engineers Without Borders to provide this one-day training course on delivering project-based learning in undergraduate engineering education. Project-based learning has become a highly regarded pedagogy for developing industry-related skills in students. Join us to discover how to successfully deliver this teaching technique.
Aimed AtAcademic staff teaching undergraduate engineering
As a result of participating in this training course, you will be able to:
- Describe project-based learning and identify the key differences between project-based learning and more traditional methods of setting design projects.
- Describe the behaviours needed from students and educators to enable successful project-based learning.
- Design learning activities that encourage appropriate student and educator behaviour.
- Design learning activities to help students develop their skills in:
- Need identification and brief interrogation: understanding a design brief and how to develop a problem definition.
- Divergent thinking: idea generation and evaluation.
- Iterative idea development: refining ideas.
- Communication of design ideas: communication of design and how it meets the needs outlined in the brief.
- Outline a lesson plan for each of the four stages (outlined above) of the Engineering for People Design Challenge, or similar activity.
- How to have ideas on 25 May 2022
- Conceptual design skills for engineers: 4-week course on 28 Sep 2017
