description
The aim of teaching was to provide students with practical experience of applying engineering project management skills and competence in the use of computer based project management tools. The activity made up one of the five learning outcomes of the module “Management for Engineers 1(MEC 018105)”. The students were studying part time and had two-hour practical session once a week. Teaching in practical sessions, students were give software (Ms Project 2007) demonstrations using projector. The word files of the demonstration steps with the practical exercises were uploaded on the wiki (http://mec08105practical.pbworks.com/w/page/8760845/FrontPage) It helped students in assessing the lectures online at home and at their work place. Online lecture notes also helped students in completing the practice exercises. Students were asked to create their individual wikis and upload their work on it. Second, blogs were used for the students’ group work of presenting a poster. The exercise framed one of the major elements of the continuous assessment. Two groups of three and four students were formed. Each student was required to make their contribution to the group work. Each group was assigned a blog and only group members were allowed to post the message on it. The other group members could read and add a comment if they want. The blogs helped students in collaborating online, although they were working at different places in Scotland. Blog posts helped group members to see their contribution to the group work as well as overall progress of the group work. As a tutor, it was easy for me to evaluate the students' work and provide them with timely feedback online.
