Realigning Student First Year Orientation Activities with CDIO
MetadataShow full item record
Orientation Day for incoming student engineers is a strategic instrument delivered by the Engineering Foundation Year academic and teaching-support team as the initiation of orientation for students to Curtin University and the Engineering Foundation Year. In 2015 the Orientation Day rebranded as #EFYOday underwent significant realignment consistent with the principles of Conceive Design implement and Operate (CDIO) in order to better reflect the ongoing teaching at Curtin University Engineering and enhance orientation outcomes. Feedback was sought from students, staff and student-mentors regarding the efficacy of the changes.
