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…

Fries, Ryan; Cross, Brad; Zhou, Jianpeng; Verbais, Chad – Advances in Engineering Education, 2017
Because many engineering programs use capstone design courses and value strong communication abilities, authors sought to identify how student written communication skills changed because of industry-sponsored capstone design projects. A student exit survey was collected at the end of the capstone design course during faculty-led projects and…

Bairaktarova, Diana; Eodice, Michele – Advances in Engineering Education, 2017
Thermodynamics is a foundational course in nearly every engineering program. In a traditional classroom, instructors focus on the analysis of thermodynamic energy systems and their application to real world contexts. Because these complex systems can be difficult to understand, some instructors encourage students to tap into their creative side…

Russell, Jae-Eun; Andersland, Mark S.; Van Horne, Sam; Gikonyo, John; Sloan, Logan – Advances in Engineering Education, 2017
Post-secondary educators are increasingly experimenting with the possibility of blending or replacing traditional lecture-based instruction with student-centered instruction. Although some studies have been completed, much remains to be learned about when and why student-centered instruction works and the effectiveness of specific approaches. The…

Soundarajan, Neelam; Camp, Stephen M.; Lee, David; Ramnath, Rajiv; Weide, Bruce W. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2016
The number of freshmen interested in entrepreneurship has grown dramatically in the last few years. In response, many universities have created entrepreneurship programs, including ones focused on engineering entrepreneurship. In this paper, we report on NEWPATH, an innovative NSF-supported program at Ohio State, designed to nurture students to…

Ferri, Bonni H.; Ferri, Aldo A.; Majerich, David M.; Madden, Amanda G. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2016
This paper examines the effects of hands-on learning in an undergraduate circuits class that is taught to non-majors; i.e., students outside of electrical and computing engineering. The course, ECE3710, is taught in a blended format facilitated by the video lectures prepared for two Massive Open Online Courses developed for the Coursera Platform.…

Clark, Renee M.; Kaw, Autar; Besterfield-Sacre, Mary – Advances in Engineering Education, 2016
Blended, flipped, and semi-flipped instructional approaches were used in various sections of a numerical methods course for undergraduate mechanical engineers. During the spring of 2014, a blended approach was used; in the summer of 2014, a combination of blended and flipped instruction was used to deliver a semi-flipped course; and in the fall 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…
