Kamel, Fouad and Baguley, Margaret and Thorpe, David (2010) Work in progress - assessment of how engaging in teaching may enhance the learning journey of engineering and education students. In: FIE 2010: Celebrating 40 Years of Innovation , 27-30 Oct 2010, Washington, DC. United States.
This paper will examine the initial stages of a research project which seeks to evaluate the teaching potential of engineering and education students in the higher education setting. This analysis was conducted independently by three academics from engineering and education based on an initial neophyte teaching performance of an engineering student. The academics utilized both discipline-specific and pedagogical expertise in order to compare and contrast their findings and in the process were able to identify areas in which the student demonstrated lack of knowledge and/or skills during their teaching episode. The results of this pilot study provides important information in relation to enhancing the tertiary experience of students studying engineering, in areas such as including teaching and presentation skills which are increasingly becoming necessary for engineers; determining how to implement a range of these type of performance skills in a crowded engineering curriculum and devising ways to integrate pedagogical skills within authentic assessment tasks, such as through peer review of engineering students by pre-service education students which provides mutual benefits to both cohorts.
