Technological and Engineering Literacy/Philosophy of Engineering
Under the current COVID-19 crisis the only alternative to the classroom lectures seems to be the online virtual instructions. However, Mastery Learning, a more intimate communication between the teacher and the students ( and so important in Engineering Education!), between a mentor, a Guru and his/her disciples, cannot be established thoroughly through online teaching. First, the paper gives some examples from ancient Oriental histories and mythologies as well as from modern Occidental histories of science, mainly from physics and mathematics, to emphasize the significance of Mastery Learning. Second, it illustrates how Mastery Learning can be established and offered in the Undergraduate Engineering Curricula in a more meaningful manner even during the COVID-19 crisis. Third, and finally, the paper presents some instructional techniques to show how online instructions can still accommodate some aspects of Mastery Learning.
