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…

Wettstein, Stephanie G. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2018
In-class example problems that students work out on their own using active problem-solving are typically well received and help the students better learn the material; however, they are difficult to enact in large classes with limited resources due to the number of questions received and the speed at which different students work through the…

London, Jeremi S.; Bekki, Jennifer M.; Brunhaver, Samantha R.; Carberry, Adam R.; McKenna, Ann F. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2018
The increasing interest in cultivating the entrepreneurial mindset among engineering students necessitates a shared language around what this looks like in terms of attitudes and behaviors, and frameworks provide this. A framework was developed to characterize the entrepreneurial mindset in light of the Kern Family Foundation's 3C's: curiosity,…

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…

Le Doux, Joseph M.; Waller, Alisha A. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2016
This paper describes the problem-solving studio (PSS) learning environment. PSS was designed to teach students how to solve difficult analytical engineering problems without resorting to rote memorization of algorithms, while at the same time developing their deep conceptual understanding of the course topics. There are several key features of…

Webster, Donald R.; Majerich, David M.; Madden, Amanda G. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2016
A flipped classroom approach was implemented in an undergraduate fluid mechanics course. Students watched short, online video lectures before class, participated in active in-class problem solving sessions (in pairs), and completed individualized online quizzes weekly. In-class activities were designed to develop problem-solving skills and teach…

Karabulut-Ilgu, Aliye; Jahren, Charles – Advances in Engineering Education, 2016
Engineering educators call for a widespread implementation of hybrid learning to respond to rapidly changing demands of the 21st century. In response to this call, a junior-level course in the Construction Engineering program entitled Construction Equipment and Heavy Construction Methods was converted into a hybrid learning model. The overarching…

Hanyak, Michael E., Jr. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2015
In an introductory chemical engineering course, the conceptual framework of a holistic problem-solving methodology in conjunction with a problem-based learning approach has been shown to create a learning environment that nurtures deep learning rather than surface learning. Based on exam scores, student grades are either the same or better than…

Bekki, Jennifer M.; Bernstein, Bianca; Fabert, Natalie; Gildar, Natalie; Way, Amy – Advances in Engineering Education, 2014
Interpersonal problem solving skills allow engineers to prevent interpersonal difficulties more effectively and to manage conflict, both of which are critical to successful participation on teams. This research provides evidence that the "Career"WISE online learning environment can improve those skills among women in engineering graduate…

Gero, Aharon; Zoabi, Wishah; Sabag, Nissim – Advances in Engineering Education, 2014
Two-year college teachers face great difficulty when they teach the principle of operation of the bipolar junction transistor--a subject which forms the basis for electronics studies. The difficulty arises from both the complexity of the device and by the lack of adequate scientific background among the students. We, therefore, developed a unique…

Khalaf, Kinda; Balawi, Shadi; Hitt, George Wesley; Radaideh, Ahmad – Advances in Engineering Education, 2013
This paper presents an innovative, interdisciplinary, design-and-build course created to improve placement, content, and pedagogy for introductory engineering design education. Infused at the freshman level, the course aims to promote expert design thinking by using problem-based learning (PBL) as the mode of delivery. The course is structured to…

Barroso, Luciana R.; Morgan, James R. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2012
This paper describes the creation and evolution of an undergraduate dynamics and vibrations course for civil engineering students. Incorporating vibrations into the course allows students to see and study "real" civil engineering applications of the course content. This connection of academic principles to real life situations is in…
