Towards Real-Time Systems Education with PBL
Second international workshop on Real-Time Systems Education (RTEW), Montreal, Canada, June 1997, IEEE Computer Society Press, pages 39-41.
In this report the plans for the spring term of the third year of the Information Technology M.Sc. program in engineering at Linkping university is described. The adopted pedagogical form is inspired by the idea of Problem-Based Learning (PBL). Major ingredients in PBL are self-directed learning, and group discussions based on realistic examples. This induces a higher degree of integration among topics than is usual in traditional curricula. The spring term which is reported upon is organized around four themes of study integrating the traditional topics of concurrent programming, operating systems, real-time systems, automatic control, discrete time circuit theory, linear algebra, transform theory, and ethics. A team of several teachers from four departments of the university are involved in the implementation of this term's education.
