Thurlings, Marieke; van Diggelen, Migchiel – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
This study explores how engineering academic teachers perceive their practical knowledge on learning and feedback. Academic teachers and education directors of different disciplines in an engineering university were interviewed. Responses were analysed using the matrix method and cross-case analysis. Five different profiles emerged that provided…

Mitchell, John E.; Nyamapfene, Abel; Roach, Kate; Tilley, Emanuela – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
Many traditional engineering schools are struggling to balance the calls to provide an innovative engineering education that meet the demands of graduates and their employers with the constraints and momentum of their existing curriculum. In this paper we present the conceptual design behind a framework that integrates existing discipline-specific…

Bissett-Johnson, Katherine; Radcliffe, David F. – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
Engineering education for sustainable design often focuses on technical solutions with little consideration of social impact. This paper presents a case study of a project-based learning (PBL) studio course engaging engineering students in social and sustainable design practices with external clients in developing economies. The case is a review…

Mann, Llewellyn; Chang, Rosemary; Chandrasekaran, Siva; Coddington, Alicen; Daniel, Scott; Cook, Emily; Crossin, Enda; Cosson, Barbara; Turner, Jennifer; Mazzurco, Andrea; Dohaney, Jacqueline; O'Hanlon, Tim; Pickering, Janine; Walker, Suzanne; Maclean, Francesca; Smith, Timothy D. – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
Problem-based learning (PBL) has a history of producing strong educational results in engineering; however, global society is challenged by highly complex environmental, socio-political and technical problems summarised in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This obliges us to explore educational approaches that address complexity. Yet,…

Du, Xiangyun; Naji, Khalid Kamal; Ebead, Usama; Ma, Jianping – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
This qualitative longitudinal study explored three engineering instructors' professional agency in implementing project-based learning (PBL), including multiple sets of data (18 interviews, observations, and written reflections spanning three semesters). The results show that the instructors' care for students, interest in pedagogical innovation,…

Chen, Juebei; Kolmos, Anette; Du, Xiangyun – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
During the last 40 years, problem- and project-based learning (PBL) has been widely adopted in engineering education because of its expected effectiveness in developing students' professional knowledge and transferable skills. With a growing number of PBL researches and practices in engineering education, systematic or meta-analysis reviews were…

Kolmos, Anette; Holgaard, Jette Egelund; Clausen, Nicolaj Riise – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
Problem- and project-based learning (PBL) has been seen as one of the pedagogical models to bridge the knowledge gab between education and work. This article reports a study of students' preparedness from a systemic PBL university to enter work life. Theoretically, a conceptual understanding of a systemic PBL is presented including four elements:…

Pilcher, Nick; Galbrun, Laurent; Craig, Nigel; Murray, Mike; Forster, Alan M.; Tennant, Stuart – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
Two ongoing and recurrent debates in the employment of academic staff are (1) how much industry experience should faculty staff have? and (2) what priority is given to research, teaching or both? Such debates take place worldwide and are particularly relevant to vocational subject areas. Through a statistical analysis of circa 200 job adverts for…

Direito, Inês; Chance, Shannon; Malik, Manish – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
Research on the role of grit -- defined as both perseverance and passion for long-term goals -- on human performance has been conducted for the past decade. It has been suggested that this non-cognitive factor is a better predictor of students' retention than traditional academic measures. These findings hold relevance for engineering education…

Børsen, Tom; Serreau, Yann; Reifschneider, Kiera; Baier, André; Pinkelman, Rebecca; Smetanina, Tatiana; Zandvoort, Henk – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
For the past 14 years the Social Ecological Responsibility in Science and Engineering Education (SERSEE) Network has discussed the challenging but necessary task of teaching social and ecological responsibility to science and engineering students. Identifying, sharing and developing best practices, pedagogical materials and tools as well as a…

Strimel, Greg J.; Bartholomew, Scott R.; Purzer, Senay; Zhang, Liwei; Ruesch, Emily Yoshikawa – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
Considering the challenges associated with the teaching of engineering design, and recognising potential differences in design values of individuals from various backgrounds, this study investigated the utility of "adaptive comparative judgment" (ACJ) as a method for informing the teaching and practice of engineering design. The authors…

Servant-Miklos, Virginie F. C.; Dewar, Eleanor F. A.; Bøgelund, Pia – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
Many blue-collar jobs, most of which are performed by men, are likely to be displaced by automation. These workers will, therefore, need to be retrained and reskilled, many of them choosing for engineering education as mature students. This paper uses Interpretive Phenomenological Analysis to draw a complex portrait of the experience of…

Craps, Sofie; Pinxten, Maarten; Knipprath, Heidi; Langie, Greet – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
It is recognised that engineers end up in a wide variety of engineering positions and that the importance of professional competencies might vary accordingly. However, most studies regarding professional competencies, employability or career guidance fail to address this variety in professional roles. This systematic literature review aims to…

Bombaerts, Gunter; Spahn, Andreas – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
A course on ethics and history of technology, taught to 1886 first-year engineering students of 14 engineering departments was redesigned using Self-Determination Theory (SDT) by adapting many course elements at the same time. We applied the situational level of Vallerand's hierarchical model, analysing how the elements of this ethics and history…

Bolstad, Torstein; Wallin, Patric; Lundheim, Lars; Larsen, Bjørn B.; Tybell, Thomas – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
This study explores how project-based learning in combination with other pedagogical scaffolding approaches influences students' experiences during their transition into the university. Based on the thematic analysis of interviews with students at the end of the first semester, we show how a project-based course in electronics can create…
