How to Teach CAD/CAE Systems
Keywords:CAD/CAE systems, innovative methods of teaching, upper secondary education (ISCED 3)
In the traditional methodology of CAD system teaching, one starts with acquirement of technical drawing principles and design of technical schemes and drawings based on manual drawing. Only consequently students learn to draw the schemes and technical drawings in some of the CAD systems. An alternative possibility to teach CAD/CAE systems could be to start immediately with machine element draughts and modelling and to the technical drawing teaching to pay attention only marginally, in a reduced time allocation. A key question related to this, by the authors proposed way of teaching CAD/CAE systems, is whether the reduction of the technical drawing teaching will not have a negative impact on the students` achievements. The answer to this question should be found out from a pedagogical experiment which the authors are going to carry out and a methodology of which is presented in the paper.
