Due to its open-ended nature, project-based learning (PBL) is a suitable methodology to achieve student motivation and enrich creativity skills. This article describes the design of PBL activities in two undergraduate courses on digital signal processing techniques. The academic context is a bachelor's degree in telecommunication engineering at the Universidad de Extremadura in Spain. Full specifications for five project proposals that other instructors could use are explained, including an in…

Project-Based Learning to Develop Creative Abilities in Students

This article describes project-based learning as innovative pedagogical technology, able to transform the learning process in order to develop creative abilities in students. A survey among

Using service learning for improving student attraction and engagement in STEM studies

Both in Europe and around the world, there is a lack of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) graduates. The Universities that offer STEM studies face two common problems, the first of

Creative students need creative teachers: Fostering the creativity of university teachers: A blind spot in higher engineering education?

Fostering students' creativity is one indicator for good teaching and learning in higher engineering education. Recently, several approaches for fostering creativity in higher engineering education

Creativity in Electrical Engineering Degree Programs: Where Is the Content?

It is demonstrated on a large scale that explicit articulation of creativity-related learning goals on engineering syllabi is quite limited, and primarily limited to the first year of study.

Signal Processing Projects at Technische Universität Darmstadt: How to engage undergraduate students in signal processing practice

This article is meant to share the experience on integrating signal processing hands-on opportunities into formal engineering education at Technische Universität (TU) Darmstadt, Germany to inspire colleagues and perhaps trigger new hands- on projects by sharing the insights.
