Title New Curricula in Mechatronics and Electrical Engineering, Deltion College, Zwoll, NL
Product Type program or curricula
The new curricula for Mechatronics and Electrical Engineering at Deltion College, Zwolle, NL was designed according to the findings developed during the implementation of the MC methodology in everyday classes.
The insight in this new individualized way of learning on demand was transferred into the systemic curricula planning as a pilot for all the other vocational disciplines at Deltion College. This way the project goal of customized learning is sustainably supported.
The curricula are structured in several modules of Mechatronics and Electrical Engineering. Each module is based on a mandatory configurator to give the individual learners or the teams the indispensable framework for the self-organized learning style. This way the learners are always aware of the learning results within their respective tasks and assignments. The modularized structure of the curricula also offers tutors, facilitators and learners a high flexibility to accommodate practical implementations.
Better learning results are guaranteed this way and the curricula can continuously be updated according to the demands of vocational education and training.
However a high amount of preparatory work is required from the tutors at the beginning to structure, organize and manage this new way of individualized learning on demand.
Target group Students of three years of vocational education at Deltion College, Zwolle, NL
Result The teachers’ and students’ feedback to these modularized Courses implied that the learning results of the students are better than before, and that they were achieved in a much shorter time than doing it the former traditional way of learning.
Area of application Vocational education and training
