In February 2015, Kristina Edström, Associate professor in Engineering Education at KTH Stockholm and member of the CEE Advisory board, gave a presentation at the CDIO meeting on the effectiveness of teaching: ‘How can we maximize student learning with a reduced level of teaching resources’. In her presentation she gives eight ideas on how we can spend less time on things to improve learning. For example:
- Spend less teacher time on finishing students work by providing extensive feedback at an individual level, for example by making a list with the most common errors and let students find their own errors
- Spend less teacher time on grading exams, for example by having students mark each other’s exams with a marking scheme
