Shaping Behaviour: Strategies for Getting Students Involved in Engineering Programmes
Paladini, Edson Pacheco
European Journal of Engineering Education, v29 n1 p125-138 2004
This paper deals with a model to improve the teaching-learning process, using a participatory and interactive strategy. This strategy uses a joint decision-making model that includes teachers and students. So, the purpose of this study is to describe a model containing basic strategies for shaping suitable behaviours to professional actions (content of the minimum curriculum of various engineering programmes), through different approaches, by applying it to the teaching-learning process. Through a practical, interactive and experiential process it is possible to convey characteristics, positive and negative points, and ways of implementation of each of the approaches considered to students, and at the same time introduce behaviour-shaping strategies into the teaching-learning process. (Contains 3 tables.)
