Innovative Teaching In Civil Engineering With Interdisciplinary Team Work


Regarding the requirements of today’s work life, students should learn – beside the technical knowledge – how to work in teams. Successful team work, especially by interdisciplinary teams within construction processes, requires a wide range of competences and skills. Integration of these opportunities into education of construction engineers is discussed in this paper. The “Shift from Teaching to Learning” (WILDT, J. 2003) provides a strengthened focus on education of competences
such as method-, social- and self-competences. Different types of courses and lectures have been analyzed regarding competence-oriented teaching. It can be seen that courses with focus on self-dependent learning like project work are appropriate for competence based teaching. A project work supported by tutors is shown as an example for interdisciplinary education of engineers. Focus was set on the project based development of competences and technical knowledge. The evaluation results show good impact on the development of the students’ skills.
