Poza-Lujan, Jose-Luis; Calafate, Carlos T.; Posadas-Yagüe, Juan-Luis; Cano, Juan-Carlos – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2016
Current opinion on undergraduate studies has led to a reformulation of teaching methodologies to base them not just on learning, but also on skills and competencies. In this approach, the teaching/learning process should accomplish both knowledge assimilation and skill development. Previous works demonstrated that a strategy that uses continuous…

Kyle, Aaron M.; Jangraw, David C.; Bouchard, Matthew B.; Downs, Matthew E. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2016
This paper presents the development, implementation, and assessment of a project-based Bioinstrumentation course. All course lectures and hands-on laboratory activities are related to a central project theme: a cardiac pacemaker. The students create a benchtop cardiac pacemaker by applying instrumentation knowledge acquired in the course to each…

Foley, Justin M.; Daly, Shanna; Lenaway, Catherine; Phillips, Jamie – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2016
Factors influencing choice of major in electrical engineering and later curricular and professional choices are investigated. Studies include both quantitative and qualitative analyses via student transcripts, surveys, and focus groups. Student motivation for choosing an electrical engineering major and later subdiscipline in the field is…

Kori, Külli; Pedaste, Margus; Altin, Heilo; Tõnisson, Eno; Palts, Tauno – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2016
Despite the high competition for places to study curricula related to information technology (IT) at the higher education level in Estonia, a large number of IT students drop out. Therefore, it is important to explore what influences students to start studying IT and what influences them to persist with their degree program. In this study, data…

Zhang, Yulei; Dang, Yan; Amer, Beverly – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2016
This paper reports a study of a large-scale blended and flipped class and has two major parts. First, it presents the design of the class, i.e., a coordinated and multisection undergraduate introduction-to-computer-information-systems course. The detailed design of various teaching methods used in the class is presented, including a digital…

Silva-Maceda, Gabriela; Arjona-Villicaña, P. David; Castillo-Barrera, F. Edgar – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2016
Learning to program is a complex task, and the impact of different pedagogical approaches to teach this skill has been hard to measure. This study examined the performance data of seven cohorts of students (N = 1168) learning programming under three different pedagogical approaches. These pedagogical approaches varied either in the length of the…

Cheng, Ping-Han; Yang, Ya-Ting Carolyn; Chang, Shih-Hui Gilbert; Kuo, Fan-Ray Revon – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2016
In recent years, many universities have opened courses to increase students' knowledge in the field of nanotechnology. These have been shown to increase students' knowledge of nanotechnology, but beyond this, advanced and applied nanotechnology courses should also focus on learning motivation and scientific enquiry abilities to equip students to…
