TLRP: Enhancing learning and teaching in electronic engineering – a digest of research findings and their implications
The ETL Project is part of the Teaching and Learning Research Programme of the ESRC and was funded to carry out investigations of teaching and learning in four contrasting areas of university education – history, economics, biological sciences and electronic engineering. The four-year project involved working closely with course teams in each subject area and collecting information about students’ approaches to studying and learning outcomes in relation to experiences of the teachinglearning environments being provided. In Electronic Engineering we worked with staff in seven course units in three universities and a college, collecting over 1000 questionnaires and interviewing over 150 students. In four of the settings, the analyses of data collected from one year-group were discussed with the course teams and led to collaborative initiatives designed to enhance student engagement and learning outcomes in the following year-group. A full report of the work in Electronic Engineering has been made available on both the project and the TLRP websites. Here we provide a brief indication of our main findings and consider their implications for enhancing teaching and learning.
