INTEGRATING NEW TECHNOLOGY INTO TEACHING OF GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING

B. Moussai

USTHB University (ALGERIA)
Laboratory and field tests are very important for students to develop a feel for soils and rocks behaviour. One way to help teach these tests is through computer test simulation or video, especially for field tests where most of the faculty members teaching geotechnical engineering do not have sufficient field experience to explain various field tests.
These tools improve the quality of learning and reduce the explanation time of geotechnical field exploration and laboratory tests compared to the traditional methods based on pictures and imaginations.
Furthermore, geotechnical laboratories in some engineering schools especially in developing countries are not well equipped and students can not perform all necessary tests.
This paper shows the importance of integrating the new technology into teaching of geotechnical engineering such as the computer test simulation or video to explain the laboratory and field tests in the classroom.
