Swafford, Marshall; Hagler, Paden – Journal of Agricultural Education, 2018
While agricultural mechanics, which includes metal fabrication, continues to be popular among school-based agricultural education (SBAE) students (Hubert & Leising, 2000), the number of required courses in agricultural mechanics for teaching certification in agricultural education is relatively low (Blackburn, Robinson, & Field, 2015).…

Haapakorpi, Arja – Journal of Education and Work, 2018
Higher education is based on a disciplinary system and science-specific educational programmes, but multi/interdisciplinarity (MD/ID) knowledge, working methods and collaboration are becoming common in the workplace with complex tasks and digital work environments. This article will provide an insight into these issues by presenting a study of the…

Rubenstein, Dana; Patterson, William; Peng, Iris; Schunk, Francisco; Mendoza-Garcia, Adriana; Lyu, Mengjie; Wang, Li-Qiong – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
Laboratory experiments provide students a tangible means of understanding dry, abstract concepts. A simple and engaging introductory wet chemistry laboratory has been developed relating quantum mechanics to color, which has been implemented for a class of about 600 students per academic year for over three years at Brown University. Color is an…

Medvedev, Jury J.; Tracey, Chantal; Engelhardt, Helen; Steksova, Yulia; Krivoshapkin, Pavel; Krivoshapkina, Elena; Klinkova, Anna – Journal of Chemical Education, 2022
Electrochemistry represents a powerful sustainable method for chemical synthesis; however, its widespread application is limited due to the lack of exposure and appropriate basic training of synthetic chemists and engineers in electrochemistry and electrochemical engineering. The introduction of diverse laboratory practices to the current…

Jangali, Satish G.; Gaitonde, Vinayak N. – Africa Education Review, 2020
Laboratory exercises have created benefits in student learning. Making laboratories open ended pushes students to have an independent perspective and to think harder. An open-ended experiment is where students are given the flexibility to develop their own experiments. Outcome-based education is an educational theory that bases each part of an…

Chan, Patrick K. C. – International Journal of Art & Design Education, 2015
Galvanised sheet metal was a popular and important material for producing handmade home utensils in Hong Kong from the 1930s onwards. It was gradually replaced by new materials like stainless steel and plastic because similar goods made with these are cheaper, more standardised, more durable and of much better quality. The handicrafts behind sheet…
