Knowledge Management in Educational Engineering Design Projects
This paper describes an approach to a more systematic and goal directed way of handling knowledge in educational Engineering Design projects. The following questions and problems are addressed in this paper: How do you and your students access the right knowledge at the right time? How can individual resources of knowledge be delivered and held accessible to a project team? How can information be exchanged effectively and easier? How can the organisation of knowledge be integrated into the organisation of a problem-based course or project? This contribution is based on experiences in problem-based teaching in Engineering Design projects at the Technical University of Berlin as well as on experiences in implementing knowledge management into industrial practice.
