Abstract

The aim of this paper is present a comparative study examining the learning experiences of undergraduate students in the power engineering field, which have been designed to improve their employability following graduation. In particular, this paper will focus on using micro-work based learning to overcome threshold concepts. This paper describes an action based approach to look at the level of undergraduate understanding around power systems from a theoretical perspective and then comparing the results from students who have undertaken micro-work based learning in this area.
