How to learn Systems Engineering

Webinar Zielsetzung: SE Austausch von Wissen und Erfahrungen
Referent:in: Michael Gainford
Position: SE course presenter with Project Performance International (PPI) and Certification Training International (CTI)
Beschreibung: Many individuals and organizations seek to grow their Systems Engineering (SE) skills and capabilities in order to tap into the well-substantiated benefits of SE - see for example Elm and Goldenson (2012). During this webinar Michael Gainford and René King will explore how people can best learn Systems Engineering (or indeed any other topic). They will lay out a number of adult learning principles, illustrating them with examples as they go. Some of the principles are:• Learners need to have a sense of progress towards their objectives;• Learners need to participate actively;• Learning should be related to the learner’s experience and knowledge;• Getting ideas wrong can be a valuable aid to developing understanding;• Time must be allowed for reflection.It is important that both the “learner” and the “learning facilitator” understand the principles, especially as people’s learning preferences vary. There are many contexts in which learning takes place, so the facilitator might for example be described as a teacher/lecturer, coach, mentor, or colleague. In an effective learning environment, there is a bi-directional relationship between facilitator and learner; each influences the other, and in fact both become learners. If there are multiple learners, they take additional benefit from influencing each other. It is a very important principle that the learner takes responsibility for learning (rather than seeing it as a service provided by the facilitator), which is why it is important that learners learn about learning.
