Ritz, Hadas; Schneider-Bentley, Lisa – Advances in Engineering Education, 2018
Collaborative learning is well-established as a method to improve student learning and retention in engineering classrooms. One problem with collaborative learning is difficulty maximizing engagement of all students during group activities. We tested a change in implementation of collaborative problem solving sessions (Workshops) in a first-year…

Demetry, Chrysanthe; Vaz, Richard F. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2017
Education abroad programs are becoming more common as a mechanism for developing the global competencies of engineering graduates. An increasing body of research shows that intercultural learning does not occur "de facto" in such programs. This study used quantitative and qualitative methods to explore changes in students' intercultural…

Hagge, Mathew; Amin-Naseri, Mostafa; Jackman, John; Guo, Enruo; Gilbert, Stephen B.; Starns, Gloria; Faidley, Leann – Advances in Engineering Education, 2017
Students learn when they connect new information to existing understanding or when they modify existing understanding to accept new information. Most current teaching methods focus on trying to get students to solve problems in a manner identical to that of an expert. This study investigates the effectiveness of assessing student understanding…
