APPLICATION OF THE CHALLENGE PROBLEM LIKE MOTIVATION STRATEGY FOR THE ENGINEERING STUDENTS

The suggestion here exposed proposes the application of the Project/Problem Based Learning PBL like educational tool in order to increase the motivation of the students. At present, one of the educational paradigms associated with the university education related to the application of the PBL-Problem/Project Based Learning and/or CP-Challenge Problem it is to find a small application that includes a factor of motivation extra on the students, factors to having in consideration can be the curiosity and relevancy of the problem and/or project. The subject matter wakes up the curiosity of the students and it stimulates the challenge of designing a real industrial application that realizes a simple task of form more or less efficient. This way the development of electronics systems applied on the real example appears as a multidisciplinary science that one adapts adequately to the marked aims; on one hand it allows to the professor to apply diverse educational innovative methodologies and on the other hand, the students are clearly motivated for developing ability and competence related to this knowledge discipline. With the application of this type of educational methodologies the students develops another type of competences such as: the teamwork, the information search, the analysis and/or synthesis capacity, the leadership... As platform of educational support and e-learning is used ADD/Moodle; the procedure uses abundant resources multimedia and interactive explanations.

A key and dynamic element in the learning of the students is the utilization of a didactic motivating strategy that is capable of creating the intention of learning. The motivation of the student is fundamental in the education of diverse areas of knowledge and especially the associated with the Electrical and Electronic Engineering. The subjects of the plans of study manage different contents of vertical form, studying in depth the knowledge and technologies inside a specific area, but normally without establishing relations with the contents of other matters. All that causes that the students have many partial visions of the technology, without having an integration global vision that in addition is necessary. This integration vision improves the motivation of the students and provides conscience about the utility of the learned. On the other hand, the utilization of small electronics applications appears as a multidisciplinary dynamic and flexible science that one adapts adequately to the aims of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), which facilitates the integration of knowledge associated with diverse disciplines in the Engineering and it promotes the motivation of the students as key element for the education/learning process.
