  • Teaching Introductory Mechanical Design Using a Continuous Prototyping Mindset

    The objective of this project is to engender a continuous prototyping mindset in students so that they may be introduced to mechanical design through authentic, iterative, inquiry-guided project experiences. I define a prototype as an interactive experiment intended to gather information for further learning. The prototyping mindset is an inquiry-driven approach that encourages students to identify missing information and anticipate unknowns, ask appropriate questions, perform an experiment (create a prototype) proactively, and iterate in order to continually improve their design decisions.

  • A Pedagogical Ecosystem for Engineering Data Analytics

    Data analytics forms the backbone of most engineering operations. This poster introduces a pedagogical ecosystem that was developed and successfully implemented for engineering data analytics education. The mission of this ecosystem is to immerse students in the technical challenges associated with contemporary data analytics i.e., extract and process data from sources such as websites, spreadsheets, and sensors; design and apply descriptive and predictive statistics to analyze this data; use technical software required to perform these analyses (Excel and MATLAB); and prepare and present visualizations (reports, charts, infographics, apps) that provide meaningful insights gleaned from the analyses.

  • Teaching Environmental Engineering Sustainability and Resiliency in Urban Systems: Simulations and Role Play

    Environmental Engineering – Urban Systems is a core course in the ENVE curriculum at UGA. It is the first course students take that exposes them to the concept and design of water, wastewater and solid waste treatment. My mission is for the students to be able to hone skills and thinking that will help them contribute to society by developing flexible and sustainable solutions to complex and complicated environmental engineering issues. I developed Teaching Environmental Engineering Sustainability and Resiliency in Urban Systems: Simulations and Role Play to provide a challenging environment for the students and help me accomplish my mission.

  • MuST-ACT: Multi Sensory Tools for Active and Creative Thinking

    Slides from the MUST-ACT affinity group's talk at FOEE2013. We propose to take concepts and make them physically real using multi-sensory tools that enhance learning and fosters creative thinking in students across engineering disciplines. These new tools would stimulate and engage multiple parts of our creative brain.

  • Turning Science and Engineering Concepts Into Objects: Integrating 3D Printing Tools into STEM Education

    An enduring challenge in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education, and also in STEM professions, is developing the innate ability of students to visualize and manipulate complex 3-dimensional (3D) spatial-temporal figures and models. We explore the use of 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, that creates solid objects of any shape from a corresponding digital model as an effective pedagogical tool to catalyze student learning through their ability to provide faithful insights into objects under study through physical touch and manipulation.

  • Keeping the classroom experience relevant: ethics, leadership and professional development in undergraduate engineering education

    The internet has brought today’s undergraduate students an historically unrivaled exposure to cultures, diverse view points, and vastly different ethical/moral frameworks than undergraduates even 10 years ago were even aware of. Our students today are able to obtain knowledge and facts from a variety of sources. But the application of facts – especially in the context of ethical challenges in the engineering profession – is an area where students remain critically underserved.

  • Low-Cost Hands-On Thermal & Fluid Experiments

    This work focuses on the development and use of very low cost Thermofluids experiments. The goal is produce experiments so low in cost that each student in a class can obtain their own to interact with individually and hands-on. A student can then manipulate and investigate the experiments at their own pace and in their own way. To achieve this goal, we are using vacuum-forming of plastic to manufacture the experiments. The first experiment to be fabricated is a simple venturi experiment made from two sheets of 0.20 inch styrene. Air flows through the venture with pressure taps for water manometers to indicate pressure at the nozzle and outlet. The cost of an experiment like this is expected to be under $10, with a complete suite of experiments available for the cost of a text book.

  • Project Based Learning to Integrate Biological Processing with Biology, Biochemistry, Food Science and Nutrition

    To better prepare our biological engineering students, a hands-on, project-based lab component was added to our material/energy balance course that integrates lecture materials with design in biological engineering, market analysis, team building, written and oral project reporting. The laboratory portion of the course is structured around two projects that are completed incrementally week-by-week, culminating in a written report (project 1) and a written and oral report (project 2). Both projects require application of materials presented in the lecture portion of the class (material and energy balances, thermodynamics) as well as subject matter as varied as market analysis, sensory evaluation, heat/mass transfer, and process scale up. The latter subject matter is introduced and resources for further exploration and application are presented.

  • Positioning Engineers for Urban Sustainability Infrastructure Transitions

    This project based learning course at Arizona State University (ASU) is designed to connect engineering students with planning and social science students as well as local policy and decision makers to explore innovative solutions for improving the sustainability of infrastructure. There are two main dimensions to the course: 1) lectures that cover how infrastructure systems work and how they enable activities in cities that are generally considered unsustainable, and 2) a semester-long project that the class completes as a group, where they identify an infrastructure challenge and work with local policy and decision makers to design solutions.

  • The Progressive Learning Platform for Computer Engineering

    This poster describes a tool/platform that is a vehicle for bringing project-based, active and collaborative learning into the computer engineering curriculum. The platform can be used across multiple courses, and thus also serves as the thread that weaves the different concepts and skills learned in different courses, allowing students to see the connections between these courses.

  • A Toolkit for Exceptional Teaching (TExT), Teaching/Learning Resources for Flipping the Classroom

    The objective of this project is to develop and assess a fully integrated set of teaching/learning tools designed to eliminate any “extra” effort associated with the implementation of active learning in the classroom. The TExT (toolkit for exceptional teaching) provides the resources needed by both teachers and students to “flip” the classroom. While it is specific to undergraduate ChE kinetics and reaction engineering, it could serve as a prototype for a 21st century “textbook” on most engineering subjects.
