Abstract

Practice sessions are essential to reinforce learning. Conventionally, they utilise fixed format spaces with dedicated equipment. With the advent of small, cheap electronics it is asked what can be achieved when the equipment is easily portable. In the third year digital electronics stream we change the pedagogy from conventional laboratory based sessions with a small activity each session to a single large project that can be completed using equipment that fits into a lunch box. This hardware choice affects the delivery of the course, and allows teaching activities to be more ad-hoc and on-demand.
