Innovative and Creative K-12 Engineering Strategies: Implications of Pre-Service Teacher Survey
Mativo, John M.; Park, Jae H.
Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, v13 n5 p26-29 Oct-Dec 2012
This study sought to find student perceptions of how the engineering design process is learned and applied by pre-service teachers at the University of Georgia. The course description read "demonstration and hands-on learning, including problem solving, designing, construction and testing of prototypes, and activities that increase aesthetic, psychomotor, and cognitive development", according to the UGA bulletin. A total of 12 students participated in this qualitative study. The four questions asked were about course expectation, outstanding experiences, definition of engineering process, and relevance of the course to future career plans. Six themes were drawn from student responses.
