CDIO Standard: 5, 8 PBL active learning service design Business system design
The Education Network for Practical Information Technologies (enPiT) is a nationwide cooperative effort between multiple universities and industries, under the auspices of the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). Its goal is to develop human resources capable of utilizing state-of-the-art information technology in a practical way. Throughout the latter half of 2017, Hokkaido Information University (HIU) participated in succeeding activities in enPiT for undergraduate students (enPiT2). This activity program focuses on the business-system-design field. In this program, Project-Based Learning (PBL) as CDI of CDIO is used for learning style, including a "service design" workshop in collaboration with each university student after a preliminary study of the introductory human interface and web programming (PHP). Following the workshop, students participated in facilitation and user-centered design seminars, and later conducted PBL in groups at each university campus. Collaborative learning was seen to boost student motivation significantly. The process and results of growing was seen greatly by receiving excitement while mutually collaborating each other. These contents and results are reported.
