Development and Assesment of Engineering Design Competencies

Engineering design thinking is one of the important pan domain thinking skill. Even though this essential skill is taught using various instructional methods such as project based learning, reverse engineering; students are unable to demonstrate engineering design thinking skill. One of the key challenges of teaching design is what to teach and how to assess engineering design as a thinking skill.

This challenge is addressed by operationalising engineering design thinking skill by measurable competencies. These competencies are tracked using descriptive scoring scale rubrics and developed using TEL environment referred as TELE-EDesC . Thesis provides the framework to design TELE-EDesC and rubrics to assess engineering design competencies.
