Jones, Lim Jen Nee
MetadataShow full item record
There are both psychomotor and cognitive skills that need to be developed in engineering education. E-learning such as computer-aided design (CAD) and virtual simulation can enhance the learning experience; however, the development for the psychomotor skills is limited. Grounded on the educational theory by Dewey, “learning by doing,” the paper presents the revamp of the engineering curriculum development with blended learning. Such redesigning of the engineering design subject used the blend of online tutorials, CAD with face-to-face workshop activities, field trips, and laboratory and in-class activities using modeling compounds to replace most of traditional classroom lectures and tutorials. The methods and implications of the redesign of curriculum are reported. As a result, students’ learning experiences were enhanced with the evidence in the subject evaluation report.
