In
general courses related to Power Electronics is not a favourite among the
students. Thus it is indeed a challenge to make the courses as interesting as
possible for the students to appreciate. The approach that I have taken towards
this are as follows:
 Use of nonconventional T & L
methods which include AL, CL and PBL as part of course delivery
 Get immediate feedback from
students at the end of class (2 minute paper). This can be done at least
once a week so that any problems faced by students whether in
understanding the lecture or in coping with the delivery method will be
known and can be rectified beforehand.
 Show relevant videos on concepts
and applications relevant to the courses as much as possible.
 Return tests and assignments (with
comments) promptly so that students can get the detail feedback of their
work for improvement in future tests or assignments.
 Use of elearning as one of the
platform for interaction with students ( forum, announcements, lecture
slides download etc.).
 Use of simulation tools such as
Matlab/Simulink in enhancing the students' understanding on the course
concepts.
