How to Motivate Students to Work in the Laboratory: A New Approach for an Electrical Machines Laboratory
Saavedra Montes, A. J.; Botero Castro, H. A.; Hernandez Riveros, J. A.

Many laboratory courses have become iterative processes in which students only seek to meet the requirements and pass the course. Some students believe these courses are boring and do not give them training as engineers. To provide a solution to the poor motivation of students in laboratories with few resources, this work proposes the method "Laboratory Practice Based on Questions" (LPBQ), which is based on Vee mapping. The results show that the method allows for more enjoyable, interesting, creative, and motivating laboratory practices. The method does not require investments in specialized equipment. (Contains 2 figures and 2 tables.)
