Yarlagadda, Prasad K. (2002) An Integration Of Educational Psychology And Instructional Technology In On-Line Teaching Of A Core Manufacturing Subject. In Taraman, K. & Salem, H. (Eds.) 2002 Pacific Conference on Manufacturing, December 2002, Bangkok, Thailand.


Manufacturing Processes is offered as a core subject at Queensland University of Technology by the School of Mechanical, Manufacturing and Medical Engineering. Delivery of this subject is generally passive and the content is dry as it consists of many theoretical principals of manufacturing. This may have a detrimental effect on students, as manufacturing process is fundamental in engineering course. Being an important fundamental subject in engineering course, it is ironic that students tend to neglect the importance of mastering its basic principals due to its nature. In this paper, emphasis will be placed on the effective use of educational psychology theories and instructional technology techniques in enhancing the learning capability of the students and improving their understanding of the manufacturing subject. Besides the ergonomics and aesthetic aspects, consideration on the effective use of Internet technology and its potential will be conscientiously looked into while developing the current on-line teaching system.

Impact and interest:

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
