Embedded peer-to-peer coaching for developing practical skills of engineering students
Published in Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)
The experience of implementing an embedded peer-to-peer coaching scheme for developing the practical and troubleshooting skills of junior electrical engineering students is described. The salient features of the presented scheme include high attendance of students during peer-to-peer coaching sessions, avoidance of surface learning approach, and its focus on developing the desired skills instead of aiming on succeeding in assessments. Implementation results over a two-year period are presented and it is shown that the presented scheme has successfully achieved its main objectives. Further developments planned to enhance its educational effectiveness are also discussed. © 2012 IEEE.
