Abstract

The workplace of scientists and engineers is about to change: even though numerical software and computer algebra systems remove the burden of routine calculation, it becomes more important than ever to get familiar with new concepts and methods quickly. Given the rapid growth of knowledge in today’s sciences, traditional “learning on supply” (i.e., defining the learning goal as the accumulation of knowledge) is no longer applicable; instead, adequate learning and teaching methods have to be established to guide learners towards efficient self-controlled learning.
