Descripción
The convenience and effectiveness of using case and project-based learning in undergraduate courses in engineering degrees is currently a subject of debate in many academic forums. While some lecturers support the advantages of these constructive learner-centred methods independently of the topic, others are sceptical about their use, mainly when addressing the teaching of scientific or technical fundamentals. In this paper, we comment on some issues that should be considered when using case-basedlearning in an undergraduate engineering course: audience analysis, course organization, material preparation, session delivery, and assessment method are key points to build a satisfactory learning experience. From our understanding, using cases may be adequate to contextualize some non-technical courses, providing the students with a practical background that helps motivating the interest of, for example, management problems.
