© 2014 IEEE. This paper presents a new course, Radionavigation Systems, whose laboratory and theoretical components complement each other to enhance student learning. Radionavigation skills and knowledge are taught by means of various instructional methods, and the laboratory successfully merges hands-on learning using specific instrumentation and software simulation tools, with m-learning and a competition. The relationship between cognitive and psychomotor learning outcomes is discussed. These instructional methods proved highly motivating to students. Oral presentations and report preparation skills also improved in students who completed the course. The experiments designed for the course are discussed in the light of student surveys, student grades, and the work carried out by the lecturer. The evaluation results demonstrate a high degree of success in meeting the initial goals of the course. The main drawback of the current course is related to equipment availability. Student motivation was high throughout the course. The course as designed is transferable to other universities.
