Abstract

To teach Engineering Mathematics, constant engagement of the students, student-led learning, giving regular assignments, and rapid feedback are essential factors that contribute to the quality of learning. Technology has radically changed the way people learn and rapid changes in technology are also changing the way that higher education will perform in the future. This case study considers the effect of using technology and new approaches in teaching and learning Engineering Mathematics in the first year of an undergraduate Civil Engineering programme. It considers the impact of student-led learning, instant feedback and peer assessment. It also shows that using technology in providing feedback can save up to 33% of academics’ time on each course.
