On 4 December 2020, Dr Ing. Emmanuel Francalanza presented a paper on "Learning Styles for Engineering within the Context of Education for Industry 4.0" at the 8th International Conference on Virtual and Networked Organisations Emergent Technologies and Tools - ViNOrg'20.
This paper was presented at a special session on education dedicated to the Erasmus+ project ICARUS which was chaired by Dr Francalanza.
This work was derived from the results of Intellectual Output 1 of the ICARUS project work. The researchers utilised a questionnaire to collect data from different target groups, including current and previous engineering students. A number of interesting findings emerged from this work including the preferred learning styles and learning methods of students and trainers.
This first part of the project was aimed at determining the needs of the HEI trainers and learners in order to develop the specifications of the training toolbox which will be developed in the coming months.
