Abstract [en]

In 2015, Örebro University was granted the rights to provide a Master of Science in Engineering (5 year engineering programme). This fall we launch two programmes, in Computer Science and Industrial Economics. The basis of these programmes rests on a pedagogical approach of increasing interest, namely CDIO (Conceive-Design-Implement-Operate), which aims to provide a framework particularly suited for technical and engineering programmes.

A number of non-trivial challenges were addressed when crafting a programme that conforms to the CDIO standards and guidelines. In particular, one of the more difficult tasks is to ensure that a programme in its entirety satisfies both the CDIO goals and the learning outcomes in the Swedish Higher Education Ordinance in a coherent and meaningful way. A further challenge is to educate the entire teaching core to help them adopt the model, and to guide the staff in finding proper use of CDIO within each different subject.

This talk presents how these challenges were addressed in adopting CDIO during the application process and the initial implementation stages. It describes how a department in rapid development was able to anchor the concepts of the pedagogical model with its teachers and programme directors. In particular, we outline the tools and processes which were used in order to create familiarity and consensus with the teaching core responsible for the new education. The talk also describes the difficulties encountered in applying a single pedagogical model to an education, and outlines the iterative process taken in order to integrate CDIO in a new programme and within its various courses.
