Tirado-Morueta, Ramón; Sánchez-Herrera, Reyes; Márquez-Sánchez, Marco A.; Mejías-Borrero, Andrés; Andujar-Márquez, José Manuel – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2018
Remote lab experiences are proliferating in higher education, although there are still few studies that manage to build a theoretical framework for educational assessment and design of this technology. In order to explore to what extent the use of facilitators of proximity to the laboratory and the autonomy of the experiment makes remote…

Roman-Suero, S.; Sanchez-Martin, J.; Zamora-Polo, F. – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2013
Final degree dissertations in cooperation and development (FDDCD) can be a suitable tool for raising the awareness of the university community. In this paper the paradigmatic actions made in this frame in the University of Extremadura for the last five years have been analysed with the aim of elucidating the possible ways to improve the…

Barnard, S.; Hassan, T.; Bagilhole, B.; Dainty, A. – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2012
Despite sustained efforts to promote engineering careers to young women, it remains the most male-dominated academic discipline in Europe. This paper will provide an overview of UK data and research on women in engineering higher education, within the context of Europe. Comparisons between data from European countries representing various regions…

Martinez-Caro, Eva; Campuzano-Bolarin, Francisco – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2011
In this paper a two-year field study was carried out to analyse how satisfaction differs across the traditional and blended learning methods. Altogether, 21 courses for graduate and postgraduate engineering students were evaluated. Several variables and their relationship with student satisfaction in the first year, with all courses delivered in…

Maceiras, Rocio; Cancela, Angeles; Urrejola, Santiago; Sanchez, Angel – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2011
The objective of this work is to share the authors' experience towards a different mode of teaching/learning method. Cooperative learning (Jigsaw) was employed on the University of Vigo's fourth-year engineering students. The results of the experience show that cooperative learning is quite a viable alternative to the classical way of lecturing at…

Garmendia, Mikel; Guisasola, Jenaro; Barragues, J. I.; Zuza, Kristina – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2008
In order to adapt current subjects to the ECTS credits system, it is necessary to estimate how much time a student has to invest in learning a subject. The Polytechnic Engineering School of the University of the Basque Country has made an initial study to investigate this matter in several subjects. A weekly questionnaire design was used for all…
