Title

Enhancing engineering education using thematic case-based learning

Author

Jose F. Vivas

Abstract

"This paper describes a learning architecture for developing a series of case-based studies that are linked by a common thematic basis. The proposed architecture takes into account "four forces" that influence the development of the thematic cases, namely, the Bloom's learning levels, industry cases to add realism into the engineering curriculum, the plug and learn approach, and incorporation of business and management issues in the context of engineering problem solving."--Abstract, page iv.
