Abstract


Instrumentation subject has a major and vital role in the industrial field. The concepts of sensors, actuators, signal interface, and conditioning, programming the microprocessor and microcontroller are the most important requisites to comprehend and contribute to the real-world application. The application of these concepts is PLC and Robotics course where the students can apply and practical experience the output. To design a project and to implement we need multidisciplinary concepts and sequence of steps viz., defining an idea, requirements and the fabricating parts to bring out a visual structure in order to perform an intended function. To inculcate this culture it’s much more important to follow and implement the standard and well-known methodology called Bloom’s taxonomy in the classroom environment for a better outcome of the course. Current leading technology PLC and Robotics course, (which require prerequisite knowledge of courses like Instrumentation, Microprocessors, Mechatronics) are very well connected for applying the gained concepts to continue the stream of the learning process. The paper presents how to bring better learning Outcomes and also create interest in the course PLC and Robotics by implementing Bloom’s taxonomy by conducting activities in the classroom.
