Ethnographic Research Based Education Model Development

Kushal Abhyankar and Subhashini Ganapathy

Abstract—Due to the decreasing number of engineering graduates, ο€ there is a strong need for the betterment of the education customs. A model-based education approach is extremely useful application with an opportunity of the technology integration. There is a need to understand the barriers that the students have in order to successfully complete the curriculum. This ethnographic research presents the foundation for a deep dive research into the pain points of the students in the engineering curriculum. This research also presents the human-technology integration points in the overall modular education system. The future research is to provide an Augmented reality based technology on small form factor devices to provide a scaffolding support in the education system.

Index Terms—Ethnographic research, engineering education, education modeling, inductive teaching, scaffolding.
