A Multi-Technique Approach for Effective Learning.
Brillhart, L.; Debs, M. B.
Triton College, under the auspices of a National Science Foundation grant, has designed a team taught course combining an engineering and rhetoric course in which students are introduced to the engineering profession and its communication techniques. The instructional technique is multi-faceted, integrating simulation of the professional environment with course content through the use of case studies, contract learning, speakers, and field experiences. In addition, computer managed testing and games dealing with clarification of values and professional ethics are used. This research supports the concept that a methodology which systematically incorporates a variety of learning/teaching approaches is successful, cost-effective, and transferable. (Author)
