Abstract

This is a hands-on workshop where participants work in groups with online learning material. The aims of this hands-on workshop are twofold: The most important aim is to inspire other engineering educators to make use of problem based online case scenarios in their teaching, to the benefit of their students’ active learning. A second aim is to assist the presenters in evaluating the prototype material and thereby assist in the process of improving the free and open access online learning material, for the benefit of engineering students and teachers around the world. The agenda for the 90 minutes workshop is as follows: • Introduction to the case scenario (5 min) • Working with Module 1 of the online material (10 + 5 min evaluation) • Working with Module 2 of the online material (10 + 5 min evaluation) • Working with Module 3 of the online material (10 + 5 min evaluation) • Working with Module 4 of the online material (10 + 5 min evaluation) • General discussion on the usefulness of the online learning material (15 min) • Evaluation of the workshop (10 min). Expected outcomes: • For the students participating: Gain a sense of real life engineering challenges in an unfamiliar context by working with the problem based online case scenario • For the teachers participating: Become inspired to make use of online learning materials in their daily teaching • For the workshop presenters: Gain valuable feedback on the prototype material in order to improve the free and open access online learning material to the benefit of engineering students and teachers around the world. The maximum number of participants in the workshop is 50. Participants will work in groups of 5. Preferentially, all participants should have easy access to the Internet via a lap top, tablet or similar device. The ratio of students participating in the workshop should be between 50 – 70%.
