An Educational Board Game to Promote the Engagement of Electric Engineering Students in Ethical Building of a Sustainable and Fair Future
Fátima Monteiro; Armando Sousa
Journal of Environmental Education, v55 n2 p138-152 2024
Faced with the current unsustainability and recognizing the importance of engineering (and technology) in the Capitalocene, it is important to develop educational approaches that facilitate the awareness and training of engineering students to the sustainable future's construction. The main objective of the study is the evaluation of the educational approach developed (educational board game). It was used an action-research methodology and a quasi-experimental method. These results show that the developed game can be an important contribution in the engineers training to change the role of engineering to an ethical and responsible construction of a sustainable and fair future.
