Activity 7 Adult learning theories for Flexible Learning

Engineering is basically about building whether it be buildings, bridges, machines or components, it is about taking an idea and have it materialise using best designs, practices and procedures. This requires a process of sound principles with a kinetic mind, after all you are going to build it and it has to work.
Based on learner centred learning I find that kolb’s learning styles of Concrete Experience, Reflective Observation, Abstract Conceptualization  and Active Experimentation best suits my program.
Students require the basic fundamentals of engineering to develop further understanding, the ability to visualise a concept and to then critique their design until the best concept is achieved and then of course to realise the concept by building.

Collaboration of engineering minds through networking helps to create improved designs and practices so it is important that we build teamwork amongst our students to foster a sense of sharing ideas and higher thinking.
