Abstract

The proposed workshop is based on the seminar within the 2012 HEA seminar series http://www.shef.ac.uk/acse/events/heaseminar2011. The intention is to share good practice with delegates in the learning and assessment of MATLAB within the engineering curriculum. The workshop will focus on three main themes: 1. Helping students engage with learning MATLAB and supporting independent learning. 2. Efficient assessment and feedback of MATLAB assignments. 3. Creative uses of MATLAB for final assessments. Each theme will be presented and discussed briefly from the front, including reflections from both the staff and student perspectives. There will then be time for delegates to try out the associated resources and techniques and thus evaluate for themselves their likely efficacy in different scenarios. There will also be time for delegates to engage in dialogue and share ideas with each other on other aspects of teaching and learning with MATLAB. Delegates should bring earphones if possible that can be used on standard workstations, although the organisers will bring a number of spare sets.
