Kunioshi, Nilson; Noguchi, Judy; Hayashi, Hiroko; Tojo, Kazuko – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2012
Oral communication skills are essential for engineers today and, as they are included in accreditation criteria of educational programmes, their teaching and evaluation deserve attention. However, concrete aspects as to what should be taught and evaluated in relation to oral communication skills have not been sufficiently established. In this…

Jakobsen, Arne; Bucciarelli, Louis L. – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2007
An essential difficulty in solving practical problems that are not like the ones a student has solved before is discerning the core of the problem. It is claimed that discernment has to be trained by variation--by varying the context of the assignments in which students have to identify and grasp their "underlying form". A decisive…
