Summary
UQ Engineering tested the use of HP mobile technology as an aid to enhancing students? technical problem solving ability in the first year course ENGG1050 Engineering Thermodynamics. Students were critically engaged with a range of alternative tutorial and solution methods enabled by mobile technology to evaluate and improve their own approaches. The hypothesis tested was that this will allow them to analyse more challenging situations as well as solve routine problems more reliably.
