A value creation processes in the engineering education: increasing the transparency
2007 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Refereed)
The paper adds to the discussion of developing the competences of engineers and its consequences on requirements for engineering education, i.e. the question on how can sustainable values be created in the education of businesslike engineers. Four context related aspects affecting the learning boundary for future engineers is identified. These are: students' view of learning, lecturers' views of learning, real-life examples, and manifestation of course content representation by practitioners. An important hinder for generative learning is that students are not realizing that efforts supporting generative learning are an investment in their future career both for the development of capabilities that gain generative learning in following courses, and outcomes that is demanded in industry. It is argued that real managers are more trustful when telling students, what efforts are necessary in order to gains the knowledge needed for making the most suitable answers on their questions of "what" and "how"
