Camelia, Fanny; Ferris, Timothy L. J.; Behrend, Monica B. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2020
Contribution: An evaluation of the effectiveness of systems engineering (SE) courses in developing students' systems thinking (ST) capacity in both the cognitive and affective domains. A combined cognitive ST performance and affective engagement with ST assessment is proposed as an approach to assess students' ST in both domains. The results can…

Chen, Huai-Yi; Wu, Chien-Ming; Lai, Chiung-Hui – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: Prior studies indicate that students experimenting with characterization of optical planar waveguides use expensive ready-made prism couplers without clear understanding about construction of the entire optical measurement system. This paper presents a cost-effective modified bright-mode prism coupler that helps students learn…
