Dr. Meike Akveld (D-MATH)

Dr. Meike Akveld (D-MATH) will report about how BYOD with Safe Exam Browser (SEB) is used for learning tasks and midterms in the analysis course for first year students at  DBAUG. The presentation will focus on how BYOD can free the teaching assistants from dull grading and bookkeeping and open up space for more content focussed discussions with the students. At the same time it prepares the ground for a smooth exam run on BYOD with SEB.

Luzia von Känel (D-BAUG)

Luzia von Känel (D-BAUG) is a lecturer in the Laboratory of Environmental Engineering. With the implementation of the Bachelor’s revision, there is increasing emphasis on Python as a programming language, both in computer science lectures and subsequently in different lectures and various laboratory courses for experiment evaluation. The different platforms available, and especially the use of a local installation in conjunction with BYOD, pose some challenges for lecturers and students. The state of the discussion will be presented with questions like the following: To what extent can we standardize the python installation within the study program to minimize the loss of valuable time for installations, problem solving, etc.?

Prof. Fabio Gramazio (D-ARCH)

Prof. Fabio Gramazio (D-ARCH) will introduce the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) examination approach, which has been implemented in the Computational Design III-IV course at D-ARCH. The presentation will focus on how BYOD can efficiently assess students’ proficiency in applying tools that have been introduced and practiced throughout the semester. It will explore the benefits and challenges of this approach and examine potential future technological improvements and pedagogical implications.
