Harmonising engineering education with nature
August 25, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
In the new millennium of digital communications, everything is wireless everywhere. Electromagnetic waves and propagation drive the wireless physical world. Therefore, it is imperative to teach advanced electromagnetics (AEM) as the core unit in university. AEM is the most abstract discipline in electrical and electronics engineering. The 21st century learners are less math equipped, but more exposed to social media and multi-media contents. For educators innovation in pedagogy is the key to teach the very abstract principle of engineering discipline. The seminar presents a new method of pedagogy drawn from experiential and anecdotal inferences in advanced electromagnetics. Inferences and analogies, which are drawn from nature, fauna, flora, and human interaction in society, help digest complex physical principles and laws of AEM. Such pedagogical practices make students more keen to learn AEM, and retention of complex and abstract concepts is maximised.
