Abstract

Digital signal processing (DSP) education has traditionally employed more demanding mathematics than most topics found among courses in electrical/electronic/computer engineering. In some cases, the technical challenges posed by some courses have made it difficult for students to complete those courses successfully. Here, we advocate for creativity to be nurtured in the first place, after which the science will flow naturally. To foster creativity, our pedagogical approach includes a variety of solutions incorporating exploratory exercises, open-ended multidisciplinary coursework, blended lecture-laboratory sessions, and a colorful working environment. We firmly believe that creativity is the way forward. Student feedback supports our approach
