Pedagogical research

Pedagogical research is warranted to empower young engineering learners. This not only augments learning efficacy but helps amass applied engineering knowledge and manage it scientifically, which in turn builds skills that are relevant to current engineering practices. Though, successfully we have adopted Bloom’s taxonomy, the most followed and recommended pedagogy for learning, we also have developed more powerful pedagogies namely : engineering wheel and memory maps. Keeping in mind the challenges of skill building in the context of product development and innovation.

Memory Map

This pedagogy is designed from practical analysis. Viewpoint of an interference fit – the loads must be identified which is followed by material modelling. The next step is to analyze the integrity of the fit either via an XLS or a detailed finite element analysis. Certain failure modes, such as fretting, must be analyzed with component history and liaising with manufacture and assembly teams during the design phase. 

Engineering Wheel

Developed in-house, this is a powerful pedagogy based on the philosophy that problem solving is easier than problem coining. A simple concept of the Poisson’s ratio is related to several engineering applications be it a pipe joint, geology, finite element method, plates, composites, or a rotating bolted joint. This makes learning integrated and holistic which is the expectation of an industry. To explain one situation “When a Poisson’s ratio assumes a value 0.5, the bulk modulus becomes infinite, locking the volumetric response”.

Bloom’s taxonomy

The following is the pedagogical approach that will be adhering to: “Bloom’s Taxonomy”.

The steps in this approach are as follows:

  • Remember – Here, we recollect the fundamental concepts of topics learnt at the university.
  • Understand – In this stage all the practical nuances of the chosen concepts are comprehended in their entireties.
  • Apply – This is the stage where candidates learn to apply the concepts understood in real time engineering situations.
  • Analyze – In this stage, candidates get an opportunity to analyze all the obvious and unobvious facets of the learning so far.
  • Evaluate – In this stage, the candidate’s problem-solving skills are evaluated critically via real time projects
  • Create – This is the stage where the original thinking of the candidate is tested. This approach is a holistic learning cycle, which will transport you from university to a designer’s desk.
