Singh, Arvind; Rocke, Sean; Pooransingh, Akash; Ramlal, Craig J. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: This paper has demonstrated that the use of blended learning in an electrical machines course has increased student engagement, pass rate, and scores across the GPA spectrum. Background: Lack of engagement by students in electric machine courses have been reported across the world. Interventions however, usually take the form of…

Gamo, Javier – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: There are many on-line resources available to learn about optics and photonics, but no assessment tools exist to evaluate the learning achievements. This paper presents an assessment framework whose validity has been proven on a course with over 70 engineering students. Background: There is evidence that on-line resources complement…

Chen, Baiyun; DeMara, Ronald F.; Salehi, Soheil; Hartshorne, Richard – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2018
A laboratory pedagogy interweaving weekly student portfolios with onsite formative electronic laboratory assessments (ELAs) is developed and assessed within the laboratory component of a required core course of the electrical and computer engineering (ECE) undergraduate curriculum. The approach acts to promote student outcomes, and neutralize…

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…
