Environmental Object Based Method for Electrical Engineering Subjects to Enhance Learning and Teaching

Ka Wai E. Cheng and Weimin Wang

Abstract—Environmental protection is now an important area of study as well as the global concern. Many teaching and learning may involve the environment as part of their study. In engineering, there are many topics related to them, but most of the syllabus may too theoretical and it is necessary to develop an object based method to assist students’ learning. A demonstration of the environmental protection and energy saving concept to Outcome-based education through a web-site development has been successfully made. A vertical and horizontal link of the environmental aspects to the study have been used in the development. It enhances the student’s learning and has provided linkage and correlation among various subject areas.

Index Terms—Environmental protection, energy saving, engineering, environmental based teaching, object based learning.
