Repositório Comum (25.334 recursos)

É um repositório para instituições de ensino e investigação produtoras de literatura científica cuja dimensão ainda não justifica a criação de um repositório próprio. Permite integrar instituições, grupos ou indivíduos na infra-estrutura do projecto, nomeadamente através das pesquisas do Portal RCAAP e da B-On.

  3. Towards technology stewardship: tools for encouraging student engagement

    Williams, Bill; Neto, Pedro; Carvalho, Isabel S.
    Getting more specialist engineering faculty members involved in the practice of high quality engineering education research (EER) has been a recurring concern at conferences and has been addressed in various initiatives over the last decade. We consider the technology stewardship concept proposed by Etienne Wenger et al. to be a fruitful area for engineering educators who have been increasingly faced with decisions relating to IT-based tools arising from a rapid proliferation of IT technology and tools and a growing emphasis on quality assurance in higher education. Choices need to be made in areas of technology selection, design and adaptation and as these decisions require...

  4. Phase change in engineering knowledge production: from an academic to an entrepreneurial contex

    Williams, Bill; Figueiredo, José
    This study uses the characterization of contrasting modes of knowledge production to follow the engineering design and research activity of a group of engineers who migrated from an academic environment to a successful startup firm. Semi-structured interviews were used to construct a narrative approach characterizing their activities in the two settings. We relate their practice to Mode 1 and Mode 2 knowledge production phases and note the importance of a phase change in the transition between the two modes.

  5. The bigger picture - capturing value creation for an engineering school as it initiates engineering education research

    Williams, Bill; Carvalho, Isabel S.
    To help those introducing engineering education research in contexts where there is no existing tradition for this kind of research, this paper looks at an approach to value capture based on a learning community cultivation model developed by Etienne Wenger which uses a five cycle assessment framework. The framework captures the value of this type of research more comprehensively than more traditional indicators like research output and can be useful both for preparing return on investment reports for administrators and for planning new research projects. Here we exemplify its application for a 3-year nationally funded project and compare this approach with an alternative one.

  6. Strategic pathways to engineering education research: case study of a top-down initiative

    Williams, Bill; Alias, Maizam
    In this paper we first present a line of research into potential pathways to facilitate broader participation of engineering educators in education research, one that we propose to develop in various international contexts. Then in the main part of the work we focus on an application of our approach in one specific national context, that of Malaysia. A top-down pathway is proposed to describe recent developments in engineering education research in Malaysia. Analysis of publications from 2000 to date has indicated an increase in engineering education research since the introduction of outcome based education in the country. A Community of...

  7. Facilitating the adoption and dissemination of active and cooperative learning methodologies in engineering education using a learner activity index approach

    Williams, Bill; Carvalho, Isabel S.
    The overall aims of the project are centred on the adoption and dissemination in engineering education at institutional and inter-institutional level in Portugal of good practice with regard to Active and Cooperative Learning (ACL). We aim to achieve this over a three-year project lifetime through a two-phase strategy: i) Initial implementation of ACL techniques in formal teaching contexts at departmental level in two engineering colleges through the use of self and peer observation using a semi-quantitative tool to measure a Learner Activity Index; ii) Subsequent dissemination of the approach to other departments and colleges using online Community of Practice (CoP) cultivation strategies and Web 2.0 tools.
