Romeu, Jorge Luis
Journal of Educational Technology Systems, v36 n3 p297-304 2007-2008
This article discusses our teaching approach in graduate level Engineering Statistics. It is based on the use of modern technology, learning groups, contextual projects, simulation models, and statistical and simulation software to entice student motivation. The use of technology to facilitate group projects and presentations, and to generate, model, and analyze data in practical engineering applications, is discussed. Class topics division, course objectives, classroom strategies, testing, and grading schemes, software tools used and results obtained are also presented.
