Abstract

At Cardiff University School of Physics and Astronomy, we needed to build upon our award-winning, LabVIEW-centric, problem- and project-based learning (PBL and PjBL) MSc teaching to accommodate an expansion of student numbers and merging of our physics- and astrophysics-based degree schemes. We wanted to continue to deliver best-in-class problem- and project-based learning while adapting to a larger and more diverse cohort. To accomplish this, we implemented an innovative 'applications-first' approach to teaching based around the LabVIEW NXG programming environment. LabVIEW NXG provides significant enhancements and improvements over traditional LabVIEW that suggested a 'start useful, stay useful' applications-first approach to LabVIEW teaching. We have therefore completely overhauled our core PBL and PjBL core module to adopt this new model. To our knowledge, this is the first such implementation of LabVIEW NXG in a higher education environment in the world.
