In this paper, we discuss the results of the ongoing research project “Datemats” funded by the European Commission - aimed at developing novel teaching methods for both design and engineering students in the field of Emerging Materials & Technologies (EM&Ts). Specifically, we will focus on Interactive, Connected, Smart (ICS) EM&Ts in the field of Wearable technologies. We framed a new innovative syllabus covering theoretical knowledge (materials and design) practical knowledge through a learning by doing approach (coding skills, manufacturing processes) and skills about how to design successful products by involving companies in the design curricula. The methodology for the preparation of the syllabus and identification of learning contents and methods is described. The structure and contents of the syllabus are presented, and finally, the future steps for the implementation of the syllabus are discussed.

Abstract

In this paper, we discuss the results of the ongoing research project “Datemats” funded by the European Commission - aimed at developing novel teaching methods for both design and engineering students in the field of Emerging Materials & Technologies (EM&Ts). Specifically, we will focus on Interactive, Connected, Smart (ICS) EM&Ts in the field of Wearable technologies. We framed a new innovative syllabus covering theoretical knowledge (materials and design) practical knowledge through a learning by doing approach (coding skills, manufacturing processes) and skills about how to design successful products by involving companies in the design curricula. The methodology for the preparation of the syllabus and identification of learning contents and methods is described. The structure and contents of the syllabus are presented, and finally, the future steps for the implementation of the syllabus are discussed.
