Abstract

This paper presents an analysis of team-teaching on a large class first year engineering mathematics module. The teaching team is drawn from several engineering disciplines, and includes both academic staff and postgraduate teaching assistants. An interdisciplinary team was selected because the module designers wished to equip students with insights on the application of mathematics in the various engineering disciplines. Despite the prevalence of large class teamteaching in engineering and other disciplines, the literature on large class teaching in engineering is limited. A key objective of the paper is to make an attempt at addressing this perceived gap by presenting the lessons learnt on large class team-teaching on this first year introductory course on engineering mathematics. Findings from this study indicate that large class team-teaching presents significant management and communication challenges. However, these challenges can be mitigated by timely planning, effective communication and team coordination.
