Teaching Control Theory Using Problem Based Learning
2001 (English)In: Proceedings of the 12th Annual Conference on Innovations in Education for Electrical and Information Engineering, 2001Conference paper (Refereed)
Problem Based Learning, PBL, has been used for several years, especially in the medical commmunity. At Linköping University, now also the program in Information Technology is taught using this method. We describe how PBL is used in a basic course in control theory, including linear algebra and Laplace transforms. The experience from the first three years of the course is promising. The students are in general more active and more motivated than students in traditional courses. The teachers spend roughly the same number of hours on the course, but the focus has shifted to more contact with the students.
