Paper Abstract

In this work, we present a teaching methodology using active-learning techniques in the course “Devices and Instrumentation” of the Erasmus Mundus Master’s Degree in “Color in Informatics and Media Technology” (CIMET). A part of the course “Devices and Instrumentation” of this Master’s is dedicated to the study of image sensors and methods to evaluate their image quality. The teaching methodology that we present consists of incorporating practical activities during the traditional lectures. One of the innovative aspects of this teaching methodology is that students apply the concepts and methods studied in class to real devices. For this, students use their own digital cameras, webcams, or cellphone cameras in class. These activities provide students a better understanding of the theoretical subject given in class and encourage the active participation of students.
