Abstract

This paper takes embedded system teaching as an example, firstly introduces critical issues in engineering education in China. Then active learning through combination of project-based learning with problem-based learning is adopted according to the characteristics of course and different types of teaching, i.e., problem-based learning to theory and basic concept, and project-based learning to experiment and curriculum design. The practice shows that integration of project-oriented problem-based learning approach in teaching and learning environment can enhance students’ learning initiative and abilities of active learning, innovation, communication and teamwork. The obtained results are a starting point to other authors willing to use active learning methodologies within the framework of engineering degrees.
