Using PBL to Deliver Course in Digital Electronics

ABSTRACT

Problem Based Learning (PBL) has proven to be a highly successful pedagogical model in many educational fields, although it is comparatively uncommon in technical education. It goes beyond the typical teaching methodology by promoting student interaction. This paper presents a PBL trial applied to an undergraduate digital electronics course in the Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) program at Chitkara Institute of Engineering and Technology, affiliated with Punjab Technical University (PTU), India. Also included in this paper is the approach to design quasi—open—ended problems for the PBL trial in the basic digital electronics course and its delivery. It also includes the comparison of the results for the PBL and traditional pedagogies.
