This project developed a process to embed augmented reality targets into course materials and trialled the materials developed with a group of learners to see whether or not having access to the images improved their learning experience and helped them engage with the material.
The [UK] Engineering Subject Centre has produced a series of peer-reviewed guides looking at various aspects of teaching and learning aimed at all those involved in engineering education. Includes topics such as teaching design, educational theories, enhancing first year student experience, teaching in labs, etc.
Engineering faculties across Australia are experiencing substantial pressure from industry, professional bodies and institutions to contextualise and embed graduate attributes in undergraduate programs. This project investigated good practice in the teaching and assessment of meta-attributes in engineering (reflective practice and systems thinking).
This project developed tools and approaches to enhance the quantitative and mathematical skills of students. A flexible electronic framework was created, through which students and educators can interactively generate a very large number of illustrative examples, problems and questions that cover a wide range of fundamental mathematical, statistical & quantitative skills.
