First-Year Hands-On Design Course: Implementation & Reception
Butterfield, Anthony E.; Branch, Kyle; Trujillo, Edward
Chemical Engineering Education, v49 n1 p19-26 Win 2015
To incorporate active and collaborative teaching methods early in our curriculum, we have developed a freshman design laboratory. The course introduces numerous core concepts and lab skills, by way of seven teaching modules, including spectrometer construction and a collaborative project with seniors. Survey data show students enjoyed and learned more from the course than through traditional methods. This class lays the groundwork for proven pedagogy throughout our curriculum.
