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…

Ahn, Benjamin; Bir, Devayan D. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2018
The hybrid course format has gained popularity in the engineering education community over the past few years. Although studies have examined student outcomes and attitudes toward hybrid courses, a limited number of studies have examined how students interact with online videos in hybrid courses. This study examined the video-viewing behaviors of…

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,…

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…

McPheron, Benjamin D.; Thangaraj, Charles V.; Thomas, Charles R. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2017
Laboratory courses can be difficult to fit into an engineering program at a liberal arts-focused university, which requires students to be exposed to appropriate breadth, as well as sufficient depth in their engineering education. One possible solution to this issue is to integrate laboratory exercises with lecture in a "studio" format,…
