Making Room for Group Work I: Teaching Engineering in a Modern Classroom Setting
Wilkens, Robert J.; Ciric, Amy R.
Chemical Engineering Education, v39 n2 Spr 2005
This paper describes the results of several teaching experiments in the teaching Studio of The University of Dayton's Learning-Teaching Center. The Studio is a state-of-the-art classroom with a flexible seating arrangements and movable whiteboards and corkboards for small group discussions. The Studio has a communications system with a TV/VCR system, electronic SMART Board, and hook-ups for portable computers. The possibilities of this teaching Studio for facilitating novel group-learning exercises were explored in a special offering of an experimental methods course for chemical engineering undergraduates. This paper discusses the impact that several group-learning methods can have upon student learning in a unique classroom setting.
