Affective Education and New Technologies starting from Music Therapy to Engineering Education!

For any enterprise, a key success factor is the quality of the product it delivers. In the education sector, this “product” is the delivery process itself, while in medicine, the customer – i.e. the student – actually takes part in the process as a “co-producer”.

This interactive aspect of the service delivery has a significant consequence for us as technology providers in medicine (actual and important now in Engineering Education), namely that any time student who fail to engage with the educational process, they suffer a kind of “loss” in this process.

More relevant to this report is the fact that people trying to predict the future of the education often disagree on the trends and drivers affecting it the most, and hence they don't draw the same conclusions about the direction of future evolutions.

Niels Bohr was right when he said, “Prediction is difficult, especially about the future.”

Engineering Education must engage the students in both the cognitive domain - developing ability to perform the techniques - and in the affective domain - transforming the student's belief to recognize the positive value of the engineering education methods. We need to think how to fill the current gap in addressing the affective domain in Music Therapy and how to extend it to Engineering Education.
