Student-led production of online teaching materials for engineering drawing skills class

Daniil I Nikitichev


We developed a novel method and practical way to teach technical drawing, and how we convey to the students the importance of technical drawing as an indispensable communication tool and the need for its full characterization e.g. tolerances. This involves pre-class activities, tutor-led sessions and an assignment purposely designed for student-led reflection. This was done as part of Design and Professional skills modules and spans between year 1 and 2. The practice was revised after its first run and improved in partnership with two undergraduate students. Their specific involvement and contribution are described in more details in this paper.  As part of the partnership, online materials were developed that allow students to learn the subject at their own pace and time.
