Abstract

The project is to develop a digital Interactive Workshop Table (IWT) to facilitate students in small group discussion on challenging issues and to prepare them for project structuring and planning.
The IWT creates a flexible common platform for students to contribute, share, and reshuffling various forms of information and knowledge (visual, audio, and textual) by incorporating commonly used mobile devices in a highly efficient and synchronous way. It is believed that such a platform could facilitate student to reach a higher level of discussing, contemplating, and deconstructing process. The project will use one undergraduate course and one graduate course for senior executives as the subject of experimentation.
