Abstract

A large number of changes, new activities and approaches have been tested at DTU in the teaching of concrete structures: Use of mandatory assignments, handing out solutions before or after exercises, detailed or summary solutions, brush-up teaching materials, strengthened consistency in solutions, videolectures recorded from lectures or produced from Powerpoint, electroic examples, inductive approach, repetition for reexams with or without lectures or supervisor or E-learning material, instruction videos for lab testing and many other things. The author will present his approaches and the resulting impact on the students learning – what worked very well and what had no effect. The author will also identify which of these activities, that can be implemented easily and have the largest effect - eventually with the inclusion of the students.
