Gorlewicz, Jenna L.; Kratchman, Louis B.; Webster, Robert J., III – Advances in Engineering Education, 2014
The haptic paddle is a force-feedback joystick used at several universities in teaching System Dynamics, a core mechanical engineering undergraduate course where students learn to model dynamic systems in several domains. A second goal of the haptic paddle is to increase the accessibility of robotics and haptics by providing a low-cost device for…

Cogger, Steven D.; Miley, Daniel H. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2012
This paper proposes that project-based active learning is a key part of engineering education at the middle school level. One project from a comprehensive middle school engineering curriculum developed by the authors is described to show how active learning and state frameworks can coexist. The theoretical basis for learning and assessment in a…
