EEG acquisition and analysis to improve stochastic processes and signal processing understanding in Engineering students: refining active learning dynamics via interactive approach in teaching uri icon

Abstract

  • © 2019, Springer-Verlag France SAS, part of Springer Nature.Mathematics as stochastic processes, signal processing and dynamical systems may be difficult to understand even for Engineering students. So, in order to improve assimilation of their contents, we proposed to use active learning (AL) in a novel way. AL will be linked to an electroencephalographic signals device in order to motivate students through real life situations. Before starting our research with massive groups of people, we preferred to implement a pilot study with two groups of advantaged students for 1 year. They were compared with 4 groups of students undergoing a traditional learning process (corresponding to 2 years of class; specifically, two groups per year in 2 years). Our study, in this original paper, aligns with the educational Tec21 model of Tecnologico de Monterrey in a novel and unique way by improving AL dynamics via interactive approach in teaching.
