Breen, Kimberly C.; Dotson, Mary Elizabeth; Madonna, Megan C.; Asturias, Gabriela; Pena, Daniela Mariucci; Springate, Hope; Alvarez, Valentina; Ramanujam, Nimmi – Advances in Engineering Education, 2023
Background: Through the human-centered design process (HCD), students, referred to as learners, can use a personal lens to contextualize engineering concepts and solve real-world problems (Goldman and Kabayadondo 2016). The Ignite program, created by the Center for Global Women's Health Technologies (GWHT) at Duke University, integrates the HCD…

Burris, Courtney J.; Nikolaev, Alexander; Paul, Himangshu; Peng, Lan – Advances in Engineering Education, 2023
Create-Rank-Compete (CRC) is a teaching method designed to promote learner-to-learner, learner-to-material, and learner-to-instructor engagement through asynchronous and synchronous online interactions. The CRC method is rooted in the constructivism theory of learning; by design, it is a Bruner's spiral that supports metacognitive skill…

Nutwell, Emily; Mokashi, Prasad; Christy, Ann – Advances in Engineering Education, 2023
This paper describes the course design and evaluation results for an online continuing education program designed for working engineers. Engineering educators have long recognized the value of reducing the gap between the classroom and work environments. Implementing experiential learning in the undergraduate classroom brings much needed context…

Paige, Myela; Schauer, Anastasia; Klesmith, Zoe; Davis, Alexis; Fu, Katherine – Advances in Engineering Education, 2023
In many mechanical engineering undergraduate curriculums, there are topics that are vital to the students' future careers in the manufacturing and design workforce that are not taught in-depth. As one of those topics, Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing, or GD&T, is vital to companies who develop and manufacture products because it allows…

Isaac Sabat; Evan Nault; Susan Saab Fortney; Martin B. Peterson; Debjyoti Banerjee – Advances in Engineering Education, 2023
Current diversity and sexual harassment trainings often take an informative approach that results in a gap between theoretical knowledge and practical resolutions of ethical dilemmas. Available research suggests that diversity training programs often elicit the greatest amount of change among people with a minority identity and can result in…

Alex Nuñez-Thompson; Ann Saterbak; Christina Rincon; Josh Stelling; Genevera Allen; Matthew Wettergreen – Advances in Engineering Education, 2023
At a small, private school in the southern US, an elective first-year design (FYD) course is offered in addition to the required capstone design course; both courses challenge student teams to tackle real-world problems. In FYD, positive team member effectiveness is cultivated through teaming instruction, demonstrations, and practice. In this…

Mark A. Burns; Valerie N. Johnson; Kellie S. Grasman; Sanaz Habibi; Kaylee A. Smith; Anna I. Kaehr; Malia F. Lacar; Brian F. Yam – Advances in Engineering Education, 2023
Many engineering courses rely on in-person lectures and textbooks for content delivery, with homework sets and exams for evaluating and reinforcing student progress. Yet some research studies have shown that exams--high-pressure, time-limited assessments--are detrimental to the learning process and unnecessarily increase students' stress. We…

Michelle Alvarado; Katie Basinger-Ellis; Behshad Lahijanian; Meserret Karaca; Diego Alvarado – Advances in Engineering Education, 2023
Student preferences for digital learning and the COVID-19 pandemic have increased demand for asynchronous learning activities, including pre-recorded video lectures. However, there are varying recommendations and a lack of data-driven results for how long video lectures should be. This study has two purposes: (1) To determine and understand…

Brubaker, Eric Reynolds; Trego, Marsie; Cohen, Shoshanah; Taha, Kofi – Advances in Engineering Education, 2022
Campus-community partnerships are integral to community-engaged learning, service-learning and similar pedagogies that extend project-based learning beyond the classroom into "real world" communities. Community-engaged courses have increased in prevalence in engineering education. Evidence suggests that they are effective at connecting…

Serna, Jaime Moreno; Chaparro, Teresa Sánchez; Purcell, Wendy Maria; Aldeanueva, Carlos Mataix – Advances in Engineering Education, 2022
Higher education institutions (HEIs) are increasingly engaged in the urgent and important work involved in the global transition towards sustainable development. They are potentially well suited to address key challenges, being as they are knowledge and talent 'factories'. Beyond their educational mission, HEIs are particularly well placed to…
