Lammi, Matthew D.; Denson, Cameron D. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2017
In this paper we examine a case study of a pedagogical strategy that focuses on the teaching of modeling as a habit of mind and practice for novice designers engaged in engineering design challenges. In an engineering design course, pre-service teachers created modeling artifacts in the form of conceptual models, graphical models, mathematical…

Fries, Ryan; Cross, Brad; Zhou, Jianpeng; Verbais, Chad – Advances in Engineering Education, 2017
Because many engineering programs use capstone design courses and value strong communication abilities, authors sought to identify how student written communication skills changed because of industry-sponsored capstone design projects. A student exit survey was collected at the end of the capstone design course during faculty-led projects and…

Solnosky, Ryan; Fairchild, Joshua – Advances in Engineering Education, 2017
Many engineering faculty have limited skills and/or assessment tools to evaluate team dynamics in multidisciplinary team-based capstone courses. Rapidly deployable tools are needed here to provide proactive feedback to teams to facilitate deeper learning. Two surveys were developed based on industrial and organizational psychology theories around…

Schrlau, Michael G.; Stevens, Robert J.; Schley, Sara – Advances in Engineering Education, 2016
Flipped classrooms support learner-centered approaches to improve conceptualization, comprehension, and problem solving skills by delivering content outside the classroom and actively engaging students inside the classroom. While literature in engineering and science education supports and encourages the use of inverted instruction, many core…

Velegol, Stephanie Butler; Zappe, Sarah E.; Mahoney, Emily – Advances in Engineering Education, 2015
Engineering students benefit from an active and interactive classroom environment where they can be guided through the problem solving process. Typically faculty members spend class time presenting the technical content required to solve problems, leaving students to apply this knowledge and problem solve on their own at home. There has recently…

Brooks, Sarah; Brown, Shane; Davis, Denny; LeBeau, Jennifer – Advances in Engineering Education, 2014
In engineering education, assessment instruments are often developed to evaluate programs and projects. Unfortunately, these innovations are not always adopted by intended audiences. Rogers' Diffusion of Innovations (DI) Theory provides a framework to analyze characteristics of an innovation that will affect adoption. The Appraisal System for…
