The Centre for Engineering and Design Education

Project Portfolio

This guide was produced as part of the HEA Engineering Subject Centre's range of resources on learning and teaching theory. It is aimed at newcomers to the field such as:

  • engineering teachers who want to be able to use education theory and research findings to inform their teaching
  • aspiring engineering education researchers who want to launch their own projects.

The guide offers a set of six "thinking tools":

  • Concepts
  • Ways of experiencing
  • Approaches to learning
  • Community of practice
  • Identity
  • Discourse
