TLRP: Electronic Engineering Subject Overview Report. Universities of Edinburgh, Durham and Coventry: ETL Project
The ETL project is within the nationwide Teaching and Learning Programme of the ESRC and has been investigating ways of ‘Enhancing Teaching-Learning Environments in Undergraduate Courses’ in four main subject areas – Electronic Engineering, Biological Sciences, Economics, and History – chosen as popular undergraduate subjects with large intakes. The project worked with teaching staff to see what is working well in existing approaches, and to provide detailed feedback from students to see whether the teaching-learning environments can be made even more effective. This report concentrates on collaborative work with staff teaching on six course units from BEng degree programmes from three universities and a first-year unit from an HNC programme in a city college. Within the universities second-, third- and fourth-year units on analogue electronics were selected, as an area that students found difficult but which was an essential component of the degree course. The intention was to identify aspects of students’ experiences of the teaching which they found particularly helpful in their learning, and any experiences that impeded their progress.
