The delivery of an interdisciplinary project between mathematics and engineering

'Moving beyond the examination - alternative approaches to assessment in the Mathematical Sciences and Engineering' workshop, Institute of Mathematics and its Applications Higher Education Teaching and Learning Series 2019, Sheffield Hallam University (03/05/2019).

A joint project is undertaken by mixed groups of mathematics and aerospace engineering second year undergraduates. The intention is to give a realistic experience of working with professionals from different disciplinary backgrounds, whilst highlighting the skill the individual possesses within their discipline. It is hoped that this will give students some perspective on their own learning and improve self-efficacy, leading to improved employability outcomes. This talk will discuss the implementation, focused on the assessment, of the group project-based learning initiative.
