Kinoshita, Timothy J.; Knight, David B.; Gibbes, Badin – Innovations in Education and Teaching International, 2017
Burgeoning college enrolments and insufficient funding to higher education have expanded the use of large lecture courses. As this trend continues, it is important to ensure that students can still learn in those challenging learning environments. Within education broadly and undergraduate engineering specifically, active learning pedagogies have…

Price, Linda; Svensson, Ingrid; Borell, Jonas; Richardson, John T. E. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2017
Students' ratings of teaching quality on course units in a computer science program and an environmental engineering program at a large Swedish university were obtained using the Course Experience Questionnaire; 8888 sets of ratings were obtained from men and 4280 sets were obtained from women over ten academic years. These student ratings from…

Pestka, Kenneth A., II; Heindel, Jennifer – Physics Teacher, 2015
This activity is designed to illustrate an application of resistive forces in the introductory physics curriculum with an interdisciplinary twist. Students are asked to examine images of riverbed boulders after a flood and estimate the water flow that was needed to push the boulders downstream. The activity provides an opportunity for students to…

Dyehouse, Melissa; Weber, Nicole; Fang, Jun; Harris, Constance; David, Ray; Hua, Inez; Strobel, Johannes – Studies in Higher Education, 2017
Engineering professional associations identified environmental sustainability as a key responsibility of the educated engineer. Data from national surveys of the general public demonstrate low environmental knowledge levels and a high level of resistance when it comes to environmental behavior. The purpose of this study was to examine the…

Greetham, Matthew; Ippolito, Kate – Higher Education Pedagogies, 2018
This case study from the Civil and Environmental Engineering department of a UK university presents an educational design that uses team-based learning (TBL) to prepare students prior to undertaking a group project. Our aim is to show how the established TBL approach can be used in a novel way as a precursor to a group project to improve the…

Hassell, David G.; Hewakandamby, Buddhika; Yueh, Lee Kok – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2018
This article presents work undertaken in the 2010-2011 academic year at two international campuses of Nottingham University. Although the data was shared after seven years, it is believed the findings have implications for the present time. The primary aim of this study was to compare the use of podcasts against traditional lectures on student…
