THE MODEL RAILROAD AS AN EXAMPLE AVOIDING TACIT KNOWLEDGE IN MICROELECTRONICS STUDIES

Wiebke Schwelgengräber, Ralf Salomon, Ralf Joost

Abstract

Even though neither teachers nor learners are running for tacit knowledge, it is omnipresent even in engineering disciplines, such as electrical engineering and computer science. This paper is about a problem-based learning environment, the model railroad project that is being developed at the University of Rostock. Two case studies, done in the Summer Term 2009, indicate that this problem-based learning environment can indeed support the students in their studies.
