Аннотация

Following educational standards and stakeholders requirements, universities define a set of core professional competencies and transferable skills which a graduate should have upon graduation from the engineering educational program. However, formulating a set of core competencies is only the first step that does not guarantee successful achievement of program learning outcomes by graduates. Success of the high quality professional training, in accordance with the principles of outcome based approach, largely depends on the choice of learning and teaching methods. The program should ensure the active participation of students in the training process and provide them all tools to become competent professionals able to solve real engineering problems. It is important that program leaders pay particular attention to the content of the courses as well as to the forms of educational activities. The main characteristics of engineering educational programs should include learning outcomes meeting the needs of all stakeholders, interdisciplinary content, modular and student-oriented in structure with possibility to follow individual curricula. This article discusses the requirements and methods of teaching / learning in engineering high school that promote student involvement in the learning process. A comparative analysis of traditional and active learning methods. An illustrative example proving the importance of active learning in training of engineers is provided in the CDIO Standards [1], where students? engagement becomes critically important.
