Competition based learning for engineering education

  4. 4. Competition Based Learning Competition Based Learning (CnBL) is a methodology where learning is achieved through a competition, but the learning result is independent of the students score in such competition. Wining the competition is not the main objective, the achievement of learning outcomes is. The CnBL by itself is not very useful. Combination with project based learning (PjBL), problem based learning (PBL) and cooperative learning (CL) will give a significant improvement to the students’ learning (Burguillo, 2010)
  5. 5. Experiment Introduced in Intelligent Urban Transport Management System (IUTMS) course in student 2011-2012 cohort The students were required to propose an IUTMS design for Kajang Team work, consists of three persons Each and every group has to present their design in front of all other students Their counterparts rated their proposal

  13. 13. Students’ feedback CnBL in combination with PjBL creates excitement among the students CnBL in combination with PjBL create more intense collaboration among the students in a group . They worked harder to gain new knowledge and skills to outperform other groups
  14. 14. Conclusions Project Based Learning (PjBL) is more effective if it is combined with Competition Based Learning (CnBL). The CnBL create excitement, closer collaboration within group member and stronger eagerness to learn among the students. The end result is better course learning outcomes
