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…

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…

Besterfield-Sacre, Mary; Zappe, Sarah; Shartrand, Angela; Hochstedt, Kirsten – Advances in Engineering Education, 2016
Entrepreneurship programs and courses in engineering education have steadily increased in the United States over the past two decades. However, the nature of these entrepreneurship courses and programs and the characteristics of the instructors who teach them are not yet well understood. The paper explores three research questions: 1) What content…

Saterbak, Ann; Volz, Tracy; Wettergreen, Matthew – Advances in Engineering Education, 2016
Faculty at Rice University are creating instructional resources to support teaching first-year engineering design using a flipped classroom model. This implementation of flipped pedagogy is unusual because content-driven, lecture courses are usually targeted for flipping, not project-based design courses that already incorporate an abundance of…

Ozaltin, Nur Ozge; Besterfield-Sacre, Mary; Clark, Renee M. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2015
Learning how to design innovatively is a critical process skill for undergraduate engineers in the 21st century. To this end, our paper discusses the development and validation of a Bayesian network decision support tool that can be used by engineering educators to make recommendations that positively impact the innovativeness of product designs.…

Douglas, Elliot P.; Chiu, Chu-Chuan – Advances in Engineering Education, 2013
This paper describes implementation and testing of an active learning, team-based pedagogical approach to instruction in engineering. This pedagogy has been termed Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL), and is based upon the learning cycle model. Rather than sitting in traditional lectures, students work in teams to complete worksheets…

Frolik, Jeff; Flikkema, Paul G.; Weller, Tom; Haden, Carol; Shiroma, Wayne; Franklin, Rhonda – Advances in Engineering Education, 2013
Individual faculty and institutions regularly develop novel educational materials that could benefit others, but these innovations often fail to gain traction outside the developers' circle as barriers to adoption are numerous. We present evidence that development targeting adaptation, rather than complete adoption, of innovative materials and…
