Title: Problem based learning approach to drilling engineering
Authors: Barker, Phil
Keywords: Petroleum engineering
Issue Date: 2004
Publisher: © Higher Education Academy Engineering Subject Centre, Loughborough University
Abstract: This case study has been developed as part of the LTSN Engineering Teaching Awards 2003-2004, from data gathered through a demonstration of the teaching and learning materials available, interviews with the tutor and a student focus group. The report covers the use of problem based learning, supported with mind-mapping and online document sharing, in an MSc module on drilling engineering. The approach offered students the opportunity to acquire and develop skills relating to resourcefulness, problem solving, group work, knowledge sharing, time management, knowledge organisation through mind mapping, and requires them to be responsible for their own learning.
