[publication] PDM Field Study in Collaborative Engineering Education – Results from 2016/17 #tugraz #research

It’s a great pleasure that our research about „PDM Field Study in Collaborative Engineering Education – Results from 2016/17“ got published in the International Journal of Online and Biomedical Engineering (iJOE).

Abstract:

This work describes the research activities performed in the field of engineering education at Austrian Federal Colleges of Engineering (HTL) in collaboration with both Graz and Vienna Universities of Technology. To support the collaboration process in engineering education, a Product Data Management (PDM) system was introduced to several Austrian HTLs. In the academic year 2016/17, a field study was begun and that will continue in 2017/18 to determine how to enhance collaboration between students by using this kind of software and methods. This paper, which is continuing a paper presented at ICL2017 in Budapest presents the first results, obtained in the academic year 2016/17 of the survey and the impression of the lecturers regarding the level of collaboration within students’ design projects.

[publication] MOOCs in Engineering Education: First Practical Experiences from two MOOCs #imoox #mooc

Our chapter about „MOOCs in Engineering Education: First Practical Experiences from two MOOCs“ in the book „Handbook of Research on Applied E-Learning in Engineering and Architecture Education“ got published.
Abstract:

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are a phenomenon of these days. Therefore it seems just a consequent step to carry out research studies how MOOCs can be integrated best in our daily life. This work aims to describe first experiences from the implementation of two MOOCs on a new developed platform. Both courses are related to engineering education: one to physics and one to mechanics. First the concept as well as the development and then also the evaluation is pointed out. It can be concluded that there is potential for educational institutions, but also barriers which must be taken into account.
