Integration of physics, mathematics and computer tools using challenge-based learning

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This contribution presents the design of a course, called a block, for first-year engineering students using challenge-based learning as an educational strategy. The design is competency-based instead of learning objective-based and is based on the How People Learn Framework and the Legacy Cycle to integrate three different disciplines that are important to solve the engineering-context challenge: physics, mathematics, and computer tools.
