A Constructivist Simulation-Based Methodology for Teaching Mobile Communications

Document Type


Publication Date



A constructivist simulation-based methodology for teaching mobile communication systems in the electrical engineering curriculum is reported. In this methodology, senior undergraduate students develop simulators under the guidance of an advisor, and the simulators are later used by other students to learn these particular technologies. Evaluations based on students' results and opinions demonstrate the effectiveness of the methodology for improving the teaching-learning process.
