Friess, Wilhelm A.; Goupee, Andrew J. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2020
Scholarship of Application. Background: Capstone courses constitute the culminating experience in engineering curricula. A core characteristic is the student team and project-based nature, with many team deliverables. The ensuing difficulty is to fairly assess the individual team member's contribution toward the team effort. Contribution: The…

Hulls, Carol C. W.; Rennick, Christopher – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2020
Contribution: A first-year programming course was redesigned with a large, open-ended robotics project. The course design aligns with best practices for promoting development of students' self-efficacy in solving ill-structured software design problems. Background: From Jonassen's theory, problem-solving outcomes are dependent on the problem…

Kim, Eunhye; Strimel, Greg J. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2020
Contribution: Increased understanding of the influence of a project-based multidisciplinary design and innovation course on students' engineering design thinking, specifically regarding problem framing. Background: Entrepreneurship-related education has been offered to engineering and technology students, but its influence has been discussed…

Johnson, Aaron W.; Blackburn, Max W.; Su, Magel P.; Finelli, Cynthia J. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: This paper presents evidence demonstrating ways in which flexible classrooms (which have movable tables and chairs that can be rearranged into different layouts) afford active learning. It highlights the quantitative increase in active learning that occurs for one instructor and discusses how the affordances of the flexible classroom…

Zhu, Jiabin; Liu, Rongrong; Liu, Qunqun; Zheng, Tianyi; Zhang, Zhinan – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: This paper qualitative research delineates the thinking and behavioral patterns that reflect students' advanced level of epistemological thinking in project-based learning (PBL) activities and the associated impact factors. Background: PBL has been widely adopted in engineering education for its effectiveness in improving students'…

Rennick, Christopher; Hulls, Carol C. W.; McKay, Kenneth N. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: A semester-long, open-ended design project was implemented to promote intellectual development of first-year students while reinforcing event-driven/procedural programming principles. This paper describes this approach, and an evaluation strategy using Perry's model for intellectual development. The results show that students can…

Debiec, Piotr – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2018
In the Internet era, students have increasingly lost interest in traditional lectures; as a consequence, their learning motivation and exam performance have decreased. The widespread adoption of learner-centered teaching methods that address this issue faces certain barriers, including: 1) the significant faculty effort necessary to prepare…

Magana, Alejandra J.; Vieira, Camilo; Boutin, Mireille – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2018
This paper studies electrical engineering learners' preferences for learning methods with various degrees of activity. Less active learning methods such as homework and peer reviews are investigated, as well as a newly introduced very active (constructive) learning method called "slectures," and some others. The results suggest that…

Calvo, Isidro; Cabanes, Itziar; Quesada, Jeronimo; Barambones, Oscar – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2018
This paper describes the design of an industrial informatics course, following the project-based learning methodology, and reports the experience of four academic years (from 2012-13 to 2015-16). Industrial Informatics is a compulsory course taught in the third year of the B.Sc. degree in industrial electronics and automation engineering at the…

Marques, Maira; Ochoa, Sergio F.; Bastarrica, Maria Cecilia; Gutierrez, Francisco J. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2018
Carrying out real-world software projects in their academic studies helps students to understand what they will face in industry, and to experience first-hand the challenges involved when working collaboratively. Most of the instructional strategies used to help students take advantage of these activities focus on supporting agile programming,…

Clark, Renee M.; Mahboobin, Arash – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2018
Background: Engineering programs must equip students to solve open-ended workplace problems. However, the literature points to actual or potential difficulties faced by students in solving open-ended or complex problems. During Fall 2014, the authors' students experienced difficulties in solving open-ended bio-signals laboratory problems of…
