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…

Gilbuena, Debra M.; Kirsch, F. Adam; Koretsky, Milo D. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2012
This paper is intended for engineering educators, high school curriculum designers, and high school teachers interested in integrating authentic, project-based learning experiences into their classes. These types of projects may appear complex, but have many advantages. We characterize the successful implementation of one such project, the…

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…

Berland, Leema; McKenna, William; Peacock, Stephanie Baker – Advances in Engineering Education, 2012
Engineering notebooks are a pervasive practice across high school, college, and professional contexts. Within this consistency, there are two basic forms: process-based notebooks serve as a complete record of the engineer's work and are used by the authors to support their endeavors, while product-based notebooks represent a record of final form…
