ALIEN webinar on TEALS lab at UMalaya, June 25, 2020

TEALS is a learning space designed under the ALIEN Erasmus+ project for conducting active learning classes in the Software Engineering Department, Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology, University of Malaya. The aim of creating the learning space is to equip software engineering students for the workplace to solve future problems, and to improve the psychomotor, cognitive and affective skills in teaching and learning software engineering courses. To achieve this aim, hardware and software are used in the active learning process to strike a good balance between emphasis on knowledge and application of the knowledge. In this webinar series, TEALS is introduced, which elaborates on its learning space principles and its existing set of software and hardware. This includes Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Programmable Autonomous, Programmable Drones Car and 3-D Printer. This is followed by demonstration of three implementations of active learning in TEALS with different focus of active learning methods and the technology used.
