Abstract

This is a case study of action research project applied to review modern techniques in manufacturing systems. It is often considered as one of learning outcomes in engineering courses for the engineering student to have insights regarding recent technologies applied in manufacturing fields. However, it is a challenge for the instructor to achieve the goal in a given semester hours while delivering scheduled subjects. Therefore this study proposes a teaching approach using an action research concept as a tool which motivates and engages more to the students as well as achieves the learning outcome to review modern technologies in limited semester hours. In other words, the same subject can be exposed to the students two times; once when they review it through searching recent journals by themselves and again when it was covered by the instructor according to syllabus schedule. Consequently, the findings from the action research have been summarized. The proposed approach shows how action research application in engineering disciplines is an effective tool to motivate learner’s abilities to review recent technologies.
