Description: Engineering tasks are always different. They are different in content (a bridge / a roadway / a building / a vehicle) and this content goes a long way to determining the bodies of knowledge and sets of skills that might be helpful in tackling it. But even within a particular task there are critical elements that determine how complex it is and the key one is context. Defining the context (including all the user dimensions) is a complex job in itself, and in a learning environment we must decide how much of this is to be pre-determined and how much is to be left open for students to decide for themselves. And beyond context lie other areas of task control where the teacher can use a number of pedagogic interventions to support learners’ performance. At every stage the variables must be understood not just in engineering terms but also in learning terms. If the principle of … ‘from the known to the unknown’ is to apply for learners, then faculty must understand how to manage the multiple
