“Learning Process is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and Knowledge”.
- Albert Einstein
Engineering students should be creative learners, self-taught and able to apply theory to practice. But today we are facing one major challenge – “Skill Shortage” in engineers. Solution is to focus on effective “Learning Process”.
“Learners can become more effective as learners if they are made aware of the important qualities which they and other learners possess. Such knowledge is likely to improve their self-confidence, to give them more control over their learning, and to prevent them attributing learning difficulties to their own inadequacies”.
There are many different types and approaches to learning. To learn effectively it is important to tailor study habits to your own needs and approach, this often means choosing techniques that work for you and evaluating them from time to time to determine if you need to try something new. In the words of Earl Nightingale:
“One hour per day of study in your chosen field is all it takes. One hour per day of study will put you at the top of your field within three years. Within five years you'll be a national authority. In seven years, you can be one of the best people in the world at what you do.”
For effective Learning of students in academics we have to ensure that what knowledge we gave to students is up to date with employers’ needs. Our courses are modular and are structured around lectures, tutorials, seminars, laboratory work, and both individual and group projects which allow our students to gain hands-on experience of investigating and applying material from lectures and tutorials in a real world context.
Lectures provide a guide to specific subject matter and explain the foundations of a subject on which a student’s knowledge can be developed.
Tutorial classes encourages students to active participation and understanding, allowing students to contribute freely, and supplements formal teaching in lectures, providing an opportunity for students to develop their ideas and skills. Tutorials also allow assessed work to be set and explained, as well as feedback to students on their knowledge and understanding, and their coursework performance. These classes are also a good place to practice transferable skills such as written and oral presentation, and to build career awareness and discipline-specific professional skills.
The practical content of our courses is high, and the skills that will develop, stand our students in good stead in competition for science/technology-based careers. All laboratory classes are supervised by lecturers and demonstrators who explain what individual practical sessions are about and what methodology will be used and why, and how the practical links to material presented in lectures and tutorials.
