Developing Engineering skills through deliberate practice and growth mind-set

Activity: Talk or presentation typesOral presentation


The CDIO framework (Conceive-Design-Implement-Operate) at Aston University has been used to develop professional skills while applying technical theory in team-based D-B-T (Design-Build-Test) projects. However, what is often missing in the Engineering curriculum is developing the psychosocial aspects of learning, priming students to be receptive to intellectual growth and skills development. This study outlines the development of CAD skills taught within a mind-set theory framework and compares performance outcomes to previous cohorts.
