Work in Progress: Development and Use of an Active Learning Classroom for a Course on Dynamic Systems
Publicerad 21 december, 2016
Our research questions were: 1) how to approach constructing the first Active Learning Classroom (ALC) in our tertiary institution?; 2) how to approach teaching an engineering course in an ALC when the instructor has no personal experience of active learning methods, or the education research such teaching methods are based on?; and 3) can we see a positive effect on student results after the first ALC trial?
This pilot project is a case study of a course in Dynamic Systems. It was taught by the same instructor during fall 2013 and fall 2014, using traditional lecturing and exercises in fall 2013 and active learning methods in fall 2014.
