    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Problem solving; Authentic learning; Authenticity; Beliefs; Engineering education research; Mathematical modelling; Case study; Self-regulation; Metacognition; Engineering education;

    Abstract : Background Innovation and technology have made the 21st century engineering workplace problems more diverse and challenging. Mathematical modelling is being increasingly used as the primary form of engineering design and is fundamental in everyday engineering problem solving. READ MORE

  4. 4. On problems, joint problem solving and change - A human behavioural approach in a construction sector context

    Author : Lars Sunding; Byggproduktion; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Problem solving.; Human behavior and psychology; Information distortion; Problem formulation; Action research; Behavioral Change; Collaboration; Construction sector;

    Abstract : Critics maintain that there are a number of troublesome issues resulting from the construction sector’s way of operating and that these remain, despite widespread criticism and measures designed to change all of this. The construction sector’s and the critics’ manner of describing these problems fails to a large extent to take into consideration the way people function in connection with practical problem solving.

  5. 5. How designers work - making sense of authentic cognitive activities

    Author : Henrik Gedenryd; Kognitionsvetenskap; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; History and Arts; planning; problem solving; pragmatism; situated cognition; distributed cognition; situated action; inquiry; interactive cognition; psychology; design methodology; design theory; cognitive science; cognition; design; Historia och konstvetenskap; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Abstract : In recent years, the growing scientific interest in design has led to great advances in our knowledge of authentic design processes. However, as these findings go counter to the existing theories in both design research and cognitive science, they pose a serious challenge for both disciplines: there is a wide gap between what the existing theories predict and what designers actually do.
