Abstract

How can academics and teachers improve the learning capabilities of Master Degree (MD) students of Engineering courses through the use of new methodologies, new instruments and new teaching approaches? This paper wants to give a possible answer to this question by sharing the experience of Virtual Design Lab module at the faculty of Engineering at University of Salerno (Italy). Teaching and learning methodologies are explained and the experience of students is evaluated through a standard questionnaire. Results seem to be promising for the organization of new modules.
