Hoic-Bozic, Natasa; Dlab, Martina Holenko; Mornar, Vedran – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2016
Blended learning models that combine face-to-face and online learning are of great importance in modern higher education. However, their development should be in line with the recent changes in e-learning that emphasize a student-centered approach and use tools available on the Web to support the learning process. This paper presents research on…

Shin, Shin-Shing – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2016
Students attending object-oriented analysis and design (OOAD) courses typically encounter difficulties transitioning from requirements analysis to logical design and then to physical design. Concept maps have been widely used in studies of user learning. The study reported here, based on the relationship of concept maps to learning theory and…

Poza-Lujan, Jose-Luis; Calafate, Carlos T.; Posadas-Yagüe, Juan-Luis; Cano, Juan-Carlos – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2016
Current opinion on undergraduate studies has led to a reformulation of teaching methodologies to base them not just on learning, but also on skills and competencies. In this approach, the teaching/learning process should accomplish both knowledge assimilation and skill development. Previous works demonstrated that a strategy that uses continuous…

Kyle, Aaron M.; Jangraw, David C.; Bouchard, Matthew B.; Downs, Matthew E. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2016
This paper presents the development, implementation, and assessment of a project-based Bioinstrumentation course. All course lectures and hands-on laboratory activities are related to a central project theme: a cardiac pacemaker. The students create a benchtop cardiac pacemaker by applying instrumentation knowledge acquired in the course to each…
