ACTIVATING STUDENTS’ PARTICIPATION IN ENGINEERING COURSES DUE TO ACTIVE LEARNING METHODS IMPLEMENTATION

Practical application of the idea of learning by doing is the framework of the many courses in Innoenergy Masters Program: Clean Fossil and Alternative Fuels Energy is presented in the manuscript. At the beginning of the course the theoretical basis of project management was delivered to students. In next step challenge to organize a scientific conference for students and young researchers was set. Students were responsible not only for theoretical preparation, planning, but also for the practical implementation of the project. The conference was nationwide, so pressure on the quality of the organization was huge. The students themselves also suffer the consequences of their decisions. The conference was organized before the 3 years by different groups of students, which gives the possibility to make comparisons and proper assessment of pedagogical evaluation and educational outcomes.

In the manuscript the aims and objectives of the project, its framework and the results of a survey conducted for students after completing the conference are presented. This project could serve as a good example of the implementation of learning by doing and project based learning approach in engineering courses.

Additionally manuscript discusses implementation of EIT OLOs which are transformed into more specific outcomes for programmes, modules and courses, as well as being connected to fit-for- purpose forms of assessment, teaching and learning activities.

They are not treated as separate components, but instead are integrated in a well-balanced manner to program. This fosters innovative and entrepreneurial mindsets based on the Knowledge Triangle.
