Learning theories that are favored by psychologists and by industry for education of adult learners turn out to be too simplistic for application to engineering education. An integrated learning model that is taking into account recent results from cognitive psychology, from neurophysiology, and from information processing appears not to be available. Therefore, this paper is aimed at designing a novel, interdisciplinary model of learning from an engineer's point of view. Learning was described… CONTINUE READING
