Denson, Cameron D.; Jones, Tamecia R. – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2022
Formal learning environments have struggled to introduce STEM content and STEM careers to students from underrepresented populations. This problem is exacerbated when dealing with students who live in rural areas where access to quality materials and instruction is limited. The eMentorship project is an innovative approach to mentoring that…

Snowden, Ariel W.; Warren, Christopher M.; Goodridge, Wade H.; Fang, Ning – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2021
The current study examined the neural correlates of spatial rotation in eight engineering undergraduates. Mastering engineering graphics requires students to mentally visualize in 3D and mentally rotate parts when developing 2D drawings. Students' spatial rotation skills play a significant role in learning and mastering engineering graphics.…

Manfredi, Louise Rosanna – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2020
In spring 2020, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic forced universities across the globe to move all teaching from in person to online. This pivot led to instructors needing to support students who became dispersed all over the world with little time to prepare. Whilst online teaching is not a new concept, there is relatively little literature…

Veurink, Norma; Richards, Melissa; Sorby, Sheryl – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2020
Studies show that spatial skills are essential to engineering success, and particularly in engineering graphics courses. Research also shows that sketching is important in developing spatial skills. Aimed at improving the spatial skills of engineering students, an intervention was developed consisting of a workbook and software (Sorby et al.,…

Bairaktarova, Diana; Williams, Daron; Katsioloudis, Petros J. – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2019
For the last decade, remedial spatial visualization training has been offered to first-year engineering students in traditional classroom settings where students attend class and interact face-to-face with an instructor and peers. An alternative to the traditional pedagogical approach is a multi-modal blended learning format that combines in-class…

Sierra, Egoitz; Minguez, Rikardo; Solaberrieta, Eneko; Goikoetxea, Nestor; Iturrate, Mikel – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2019
This article shows the benefits of active learning compared to traditional learning. It proves the importance of a fruitful discussion between peers. It is a sample of methodological change with no curricular change. It also shows the overall satisfaction of the students, who achieved an equal or better academic performance than the students in…

Williams, Thomas O., Jr.; Ernst, Jeremy V.; Kelly, Daniel P.; Clark, Aaron C. – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2019
The Purdue Spatial Visualization Test: Visualization of Rotations (PSVT: R) is a widely used assessment of spatial ability. In this report, the factor structure of the PSVT: R test items was examined through confirmatory factor analysis with data from 541 engineering design graphics students. Stata 15 and Mplus 8.2 statistical software were used…

Sreekanth, Anusha Parampalli; Viswanathan, Vimal K. – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2019
The efficiency and popularity of computer-aided design (CAD) packages have been continually improving over the past couple of decades. Most of the graduating engineers are proficient in their use and prefer using CAD models instead of simple freehand sketches to communicate their ideas. While these CAD models can enable better visualization of the…

Kelly, Daniel P.; Ernst, Jeremy V.; Clark, Aaron C. – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2019
Part of a more extensive National Science Foundation-funded study, this study presents the findings and analysis of the effect on three-dimensional modeling self-efficacy (3DSE) by the inclusion of online active learning modules (ALM). Using multiple datasets, we found that the use of ALM in an introductory engineering graphics course, closed a…

Devine, Kevin; Chang, Yi-hsiang Isaac; Klitzing, Gunnar – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2019
Recent developments in Virtual Reality (VR) technology has prompted the manufacturing industry and software vendors to investigate VR's potential for process enhancement. In this paper, we present a study to investigate whether using VR could reduce an individual's cognitive workload during the process of programming an industrial robot. The…

Cohen, Cheryl; Bairaktarova, Diana – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2018
First-year engineering (FYE) students are routinely screened for spatial ability, with the goals of predicting retention in the major and identifying those who need supplementary spatial instruction. Psychometric tests used for such screenings are often domain-general measures that lack diagnostic information to inform remedial instruction. A new…

Katsioloudis, Petros; Jones, Mildred – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2018
Results from a number of studies indicate that the type of light generated by the reflection on the surface of different types of surfaces can influence the spatial visualization ability; however, research provides inconsistent results. Considering this, a quasi-experimental study was conducted to identify the existence of statistically…

Buckley, Jeffrey; Canty, Donal; White, David; Seery, Niall; Campbell, Mark – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2018
Spatial ability, particularly the cognitive capacity for mental rotations, is a critical component of human cognition. Proficiency with mental rotation tasks is linked with educational performance in various Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines, and with more general tasks such as real world wayfinding. Spatial…

Denson, Cameron; Kelly, Daniel; Clark, Aaron – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2018
Binkley et al. (2012) contends that the economy and workplace for the 21st Century will not lie in the routine tasks of the past, instead emphasis will be put on the ability of students to communicate, share and use information to solve increasingly complex problems. This is especially true of individuals who chose to pursue careers in the…

Hyland, Tomás; Gordon, Seamus; Canty, Donal; Buckley, Jeffrey; Seery, Niall – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2018
One of the leading frameworks in engineering education specifically associated with design based competencies is the CDIO framework. This has been incorporated internationally into many institutions offering engineering education courses. Characterized by four unique stages, the CDIO framework affords an ideal scenario to incorporate a continuous…
