Abstract [en]

This contribution presents and discusses a CDIO enabling platform (CEP) used within courses at the Department of Management and Engineering, Linköping University, Sweden. The platform consists of a physical setup manifesting several potential real R&D situations, including production aspects. When present in courses, it is combined with the scenario technique based on a potential business case. The physical hardware of this teaching platform is a modular multi-utility bicycle, commonly referred to as a cargo-bike, together with assembly and welding fixtures.

From a learning theory perspective, lack of course integration and curriculum progression is problematic. For instance, the rationale of constructivism tells us that new knowledge is largely based on and created from previous knowledge. It follows that courses must "talk" with each other in the sense that students are able to use newly acquired knowledge from one course directly in another.

CDIO implementation is yet another aspect where issues of insufficient course integration and progression adds to the problem. CDIO is basically about bridging the gap between theory and practice. And since heavily theory oriented traditional courses are hard to align with the CDIO syllabus, an implementation process may benefit from solutions that foster course integration.

CEP enables and facilitates the implementation of the CDIO standard in several ways. Furthermore, from the curriculum perspective, the platform may serve as a catalyst for course integration. This paper discusses and exemplifies both these issues, CDIO implementation and course integration, using an intermediate computer aided engineering course during the third semester of the program, where the learning outcomes also includes innovative thinking and oral presentation techniques.
