Rojter, Josef (2009) Inductive-based Pedagogy in Engineering Science Subject. In: Proceedings of the ICEE & ICEER 2009 Korea : International Conference on Engineering Education and Research. Se Yung Lim ICEE, Seoul, Korea.


As part of Victoria University's re-branding, in 2005, both schools of engineering at the university decided to adopt Problem Based Learning (PBL) pedagogies in their undergraduate courses. The pedagogical approach to Engineering Materials was uniquely based on inductive-based teaching and learning methodology in which PBL constituted one of the pedagogical tools. Yet, despite greater teaching intensity and subject complexity combined with a high demand placed on time management as part of student participation in developing teamwork skills, both pass and student subject satisfaction rates remained comparatively high. The negative aspects related to poor study habits and unfamiliarity with working in teams. Conference theme: "Engineering education and research under knowledge based society" held on the 23-28 August 2009, Seoul, Korea
