Title [en]
NU4DI – Net based education for digitalisation and industry 4.0
Abstract [en]
The project aligns with the BTH strategy of enlarging the recruitment base for distance studies including national and international students, capitalizing on the engineering and pedagogical competencies developed during a pluriannual research profile on Model-Driven Development and Decision Support (MD3S). In line with the BTH strategic directions, the project shall be seen as the first step of a larger initiative aiming at the creation of a 60 ECTS on-line program offering high specialization in the field of Product and Service Innovation, in the light of the current opportunities for digitalization and challenges in sustainability that permeate the university research effort. Through attracting national and international students the initiative aims to create an economically self-sustaining set of distance courses in the short term and a self- sustained program in the long term.

Abstract [en]

The presented work springs from the hypothesis that the learning process can beaugmented by a course design that caters to peer learning in diversified groups. Thepresented work focuses on the assessment part of the course design as the type and designof assessments in a course greatly influence students' learning and can therefore be used tostimulate a desired behavior in students.

Two, timewise parallel, engineering courses on the same topic, given on campus and atdistance respectively, are studied. The current situation and potential changes areinvestigated with the ambition of being able to provide common learning activities to harvestthe potential interaction effects originating from peer learning in diversified groups,specifically aiming to mix life-long learners with “regular” students.

As a considerable part of the students within the anticipated diversified cohort are expectedto be gainfully employed (life-long learners), learning activities are preferred to begeographically and temporally unbound. In order to fulfill this design requirement anexamination process is proposed where the student initially independently chooses a topicto research and explore. The students then share their findings with fellow students via thelearning platform. An examination process based on peer review, asynchronously via forumson the learning platform, and self-assessment is proposed to motivate and support learning.The Universal Design for Learning guidelines are considered while proposing theseactivities aiming to provide good conditions for learning and potentially increase retention inthe diversified student group.

Abstract [en]

Ingenjörsmässighet today is a matter of being able to engineer complex and multifaceted systems, to empathize with users, clients, and stakeholders to know more (and know better) about the problems to be solved, and to judge the ‘goodness’ of proposed solutions across social, political, technological, cultural and environmental values. Challenge-Based Learning (CBL) has been promoted in recent years as a means for students to align the acquisition of disciplinary knowledge with the development of transversal competencies while working on authentic and sociotechnical societal problems. This paper aims to contribute to the CBL discussion by presenting the lessons learned related to conducting engineering design projects with a focus on issues and themes related to innovation in the cultural heritage domain. The paper describes how engineering design projects at the undergraduate level have been set up and conducted to cope with different innovation challenges related to the World Heritage Site of the city of Karlskrona in Sweden. It elaborates on how design projects with a cultural heritage theme can leverage how students learn about ‘softer’ and more intangible dimensions of ‘value’ (for products, systems and services).
