Labs, studios, fieldwork, and projects are key opportunities for the deliberate practice engineering students need to develop their disciplinary skills. Drawing on research on the nature and development of ‘expertise’, we provide evidence-informed and practical approaches to teaching in hands-on settings from our newly published book Facilitating Experiential Learning in Higher Education. While the book also addresses providing feedback, structuring explanations, and managing relationships with a class, this session will include activities on how to formulate and employ questions to maximise the rich learning potential of hands-on environments.

The lunch&LEARN series was created by the Center LEARN to stimulate the exchange between learning science researchers and everyone at EPFL interested in teaching. Our sessions seek to either translate learning research into teaching practice or provide evidence and insights from teaching practice. Video recordings and slides from previous sessions can be found on the lunch&LEARN webpage. During this COVID-19 impacted period, we turned it into a remote coffee&LEARN.
