Integrated Teaching Reform of Hydraulic Structure Major Using CDIO
Practice teaching is an important educational task for hydropower construction engineering major in vocational and technical colleges. Guided by Conceive Design Implement Operate (CDIO), students could get hands-on experience from practical projects under experiential learning environments, and then develop engineering capacity and project literacy. Due to the introduction of CDIO, the original unrelated and dispersed curriculums became comprehensive and continuous engineering design trainings in the form of projects. Students were divided into groups. The ability of thinking and problems solving for practical engineering could be easily cultured by a collection of comprehensive group trainings, such as program discussions, designs, and drawings.
