Abstract

This study seeks to explain the adoption and use of computational modelling and simulation across introductory engineering modules following the advent of the Integrated Engineering Programme (IEP) curriculum framework in 2013. Rogers’ (2003) diffusion of innovations theory served as the theoretical framework for this study. Findings from the study suggest that there is a correlation between academics’ views and perceptions of active learning methods and their adoption of computational tools in their teaching. In addition, the study also suggests that the adoption of computational tools at both individual and departmental level bears some correlation to their perception of, and commitment to the values espoused by the IEP.
