Workshop on scenario-based learning in Engineering announced
25 February 2013
The next event in the Faculty of Engineering’s series of lunchtime teaching workshops is being held on Thursday 7 March and will focus on scenario-based learning.
Active learning techniques such as problem-based learning (which can include scenarios) have been shown to be very effective in engaging students, helping them conceptualise engineering principles as well as encouraging a range of teamwork and communications skills.
Scenario-based learning is a teaching technique which the Integrated Engineering Programme (IEP) will be looking to make further use of throughout the faculty. This workshop will look at three case studies from different departments with the aim of leaving plenty of time for discussion and debate.
The session will feature the following presentations:
- What we've learnt from seven years of scenarios – Paul Greening, Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering
- Scenarios: learning by doing – Benn Thomsen, Electronic and Electrical Engineering
- Problem-based learning approaches to apps development – Dean Mohamedally, Computer Science
The scenario-based learning lunchtime workshop will be held on Thursday 7 March at 1pm in Roberts Room 422. Please feel free to bring lunch; drinks will be provided.
Videos from previous talks are available to view on the UCL Teaching Youtube channel.
