Active Teaching Techniques for Engineering Students to Ensure The Learning Outcomes of Training Programs by CDIO Approach

Tien Quoc Le, Thu Thi Anh Do

Abstract

Recent research results show that students' ability to absorb and apply lessons increases when they are actively learning. In the innovative teaching method, learners - objects of teaching activities as well as subjects of learning activities - are attracted to active learning activities organized and instructed by teachers. By this way, learners are self-reliant to discover what they do not know, not passively absorb the knowledge arranged by the teacher. Placed in situations of real life, learners experience, directly observe, discuss, experiment, solve problems posed by their thinking, both working in groups, thereby gaining new knowledge, new skills, promoting creative potential. Depending on the objectives of the specific subject, which level of knowledge or skill needs to be achieved according to the CDIO approach, the lecturer will organize appropriate activities to help students actively learn to achieve the goals. The paper explores and evaluates innovative teaching methods to help students actively learn and experience to achieve the subject’s goals and training program following the CDIO approach, as well as meet the requirements of society.
