Inductive Teaching and Learning in Engineering Pedagogy on the Example of Remote Labs

Raivo Sell, Tiia Rüütmann, Sven Seiler


Inductive principles in Engineering Pedagogy have been presented in the present paper on the example of remote labs. Inductive teaching is one way to help students learn to use the fundamental concepts for problem solving – focusing on cases that students could work on to help develop an understanding of the phenomenon. For effective inductive teaching and problem solving tasks a supportive technical concept is needed. Here remotely controlled and virtual labs, which have got into focus during last years, can help a lot and offer flexibility and freedom for students. In this paper we are presenting an Engineering Pedagogy programme and holistic technical solution based on remote labs for supporting the engineering studies.
