IMPROVING MOTIVATION OF INDUSTRIAL DESIGN STUDENTS THROUGH EXERCISES APPLIED TO REAL CASES

Universitat Jaume I (SPAIN)
Learning to relate the different theoretical contents and apply them to solve real problems in the field of design can enrich the formative stage of students. Project-based learning is a creative methodology to integrate different knowledge acquired in various subjects to obtain a viable solution to complex problems. Besides, if the problems are proposed by real design companies it can be an additional stimulus to the students, who will see their work focused on solving real cases.

This paper describes the methodology carried out in a subject of Bachelor's Degree in Industrial Design and Product Development Engineering at the Jaume I University, in order to encourage students’ motivation and improve their performance. This work describes how some activities have been adapted to change the format of teaching to project-based learning, promoting participation in design contests and inviting renowned professional designers to enrich and strengthen the training of students. Finally, the positive results of the improvement are described and their impact on the overall performance of students is measured.
