Li, Yanyan; Huang, Zhinan; Jiang, Menglu; Chang, Ting-Wen – Educational Technology & Society, 2016
Incorporating scientific fundamentals via engineering through a design-based methodology has proven to be highly effective for STEM education. Engineering design can be instantiated for learning as they involve mental and physical stimulation and develop practical skills especially in solving problems. Lego bricks, as a set of toys based on design…

Aiken, John M.; Henderson, Rachel; Caballero, Marcos D. – Physical Review Physics Education Research, 2019
Physics education research (PER) has used quantitative modeling techniques to explore learning, affect, and other aspects of physics education. However, these studies have rarely examined the predictive output of the models, instead focusing on the inferences or causal relationships observed in various data sets. This research introduces a modern…

Mir, Masood Saleem – ProQuest LLC, 2012
The interdisciplinary nature of "Systems Engineering" (SE), having "stakeholders" from diverse domains with orthogonal facets, and need to consider all stages of "lifecycle" of system during conception, can benefit tremendously by employing "Knowledge Engineering" (KE) to achieve semantic agreement among all…

Chowdhury, Rezaul – Education Sciences, 2019
Engineering education must embrace several challenges, such as increased numbers of work-based students, increased demand for online education, mismatches in employability skills and industry requirements, and lack of student engagement. The hydrology course at the University of Southern Queensland attracts more than 100 students every year, where…

Shoufan, Abdulhadi – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2017
The concept of intrinsic complexity explains why different problems of the same type, tackled by the same problem solver, can require different times to solve and yield solutions of different quality. This paper proposes a general four-step approach that can be used to establish a model for the intrinsic complexity of a problem class in terms of…

Mitra, Sandeep – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2014
This article presents the use of a model-centric approach to facilitate software development projects conforming to the three-tier architecture in undergraduate software engineering courses. Many instructors intend that such projects create software applications for use by real-world customers. While it is important that the first version of these…

Chu, Lawrence; Sampson, Victor; Hutner, Todd L.; Rivale, Stephanie; Crawford, Richard H. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2019
The goal of this study was to examine how the use of a new instructional model is related to changes in middle school students' engineering identity. The intent of this instructional model, which is called argument-driven engineering (ADE), is to give students opportunities to design and critique solutions to meaningful problems using the core…

Scheidt, Matthew; Godwin, Allison; Berger, Edward; Chen, John; Self, Brian P.; Widmann, James M.; Gates, Ann Q. – Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
Background: Noncognitive and affective (NCA) factors (e.g., belonging, engineering identity, motivation, mindset, personality, etc.) are important to undergraduate student success. However, few studies have considered how these factors coexist and act in concert. Purpose/Hypothesis: We hypothesize that students cluster into several distinct…

Finberg, Ethan Abraham; Griffin, David Michael; Shiflett, Mark Brandon – Chemical Engineering Education, 2020
A Unit Operations Laboratory (UOL) is fundamental to undergraduate chemical engineering education. This article discusses a new course structure for the University of Kansas UOL and details for three new experiments covering the fundamentals of vapor-liquid equilibrium, fluid mechanics, and kinetics. Students apply knowledge from these courses as…
