Nature Of Problem-Solving Skills For 21st Century Stem Learners: What Teachers Need To Know, Paul Nnanyereugo Iwuanyanwu

Journal of STEM Teacher Education

Since the emergence of the fourth industrial revolution which calls for a new model of learning for the twenty-first century learners, it has been argued that the nature of problems that learners must solve in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) must also be transformed to enable new forms of learning skills that are needed to tackle complex global challenges. However, the question of how best to teach these skills purposefully and explicitly is largely overlooked. STEM education reformers recognize that the lecture method or traditional method of teaching is highly ineffective for teaching twenty-first century competencies and skills that ...

Emergence And Compassion: A Reflection On Interpersonal Priorities Strategies Within Collaborative Settings, Chanel Beebe

Purdue Journal of Service-Learning and International Engagement

The nature of work with and for humans and communities requires intentional relationship building that can be rife with complexities, foibles, discomfort, and learning. As scholars, researchers, practitioners, educators, and students, we carry a multitude of identities and dispositions that make collaborative work and change-making a messy and potentially emotional journey. Thus, many groups that find themselves on this journey often struggle to develop harmonious or impactful lasting relationships and often create toxic or harmful working environments for those who are the most marginalized or have the least power. The goal of this work is to provide a reflection on ...

Online Implementation Of Structural Analysis Tool For Remote Learning, Ghada El-Mahdy, Amany Micheal 2020 The British University in Egypt

Online Implementation Of Structural Analysis Tool For Remote Learning, Ghada El-Mahdy, Amany Micheal

Civil Engineering

The delivery of a structural analysis module to architectural or civil engineering students needs the visualization of certain diagrams, such as the internal force diagrams and the elastic line. These diagrams are difficult to grasp for students new to structural analysis and need a lot of practice to become proficient in drawing them. Current structural analysis textbooks with electronic platforms do not include tools to draw the internal force diagrams or deflection. This has led to the initiative of creating an online structural analysis tool to enable the student to easily apply different loadings on different statical systems to draw ...

Remanufacturing is a process of returning a used product to at least the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) performance specification from the customers’ perspective and giving the resultant product a warranty that is at least equal to that of a newly manufactured equivalent. Even though there are many benefits of remanufacturing, there are barriers when it comes to its implementation. There can arise contradictions when dealing with different products, or in different steps during the remanufacturing process. A method to solve contradictions like those is TRIZ, which is a problem-solving method that can resolve technical contradictions.

The Challenges Of Engineering Education, Engineering Practice, Code Of Ethics, And Social Justice, Rachel Shannon

ASEE North Midwest Section Annual Conference 2020 Poster Presentations

Engineering has always been human-centered through the technologies we provide to enrich and make our lives more convenient. The engineering code of ethics uphold that engineers should put “the safety, health, and welfare of the public” first. However, we argue that the code of ethics is not enough, and that we need to reinforce human-centered design in engineering education through designerly ways of thinking, reflective practices, and being more student-centered.

Lemons To Lemonade: Refining An Active Learning Course For Delivery During A Pandemic, Jeremy Straub

ASEE North Midwest Section Annual Conference 2020 Poster Presentations

The Spring semester of 2020 was a time of unanticipated and unprecedented rapid change for higher education in the United States. The COVID-19 pandemic struck the United States midway through the semester forcing colleges and universities to rapidly take courses online with minimal time to prepare. North Dakota was, comparatively, fortunate in that the transition occurred over spring break; however, initially the online period was only supposed to last for two weeks. This poster presents the process that was used to rapidly change an active learning course, which was designed for in person delivery, over to being held entirely online.

ASEE North Midwest Section Annual Conference 2020 Poster Presentations

Recent research shows the engineers continue to think less critically at the end of their undergraduate engineering degrees and fail ro adhere to their professional responsibility. A key component to addressing these issues includes assessing engineers' critical consciousness (CC). The development of a Critical Consciousness Scale (CCS) is important for civil engineering education as it assists practitioners and educators with better means to assess whether ant interventions (e.g. ABET) and indeed efficacious.

Proposing An Engineering Gendered Racial Microaggression Scale, Arielle True-Funk, Cristina Poleacovschi, Gloria Jones-Johnson, Scott Grant Feinstein, Meghan Berger

ASEE North Midwest Section Annual Conference 2020 Publications

Background Minorities in engineering regularly experience negative statements or behaviors of others that disparage them due to their gender, race, ethnicity, or other identity. Students from engineering have cited these persistent subtle negative statements and behaviors, or microaggressions, as reasons for considering leaving engineering programs or the university entirely. Previous measures of microaggressions have not been designed to capture the unique experiences of minorities within the engineering environment.
Purpose This research differs from previous work because it incorporates an intersectional perspective by acknowledging microaggressions are not experienced universally for individuals within all groups or institutions (Crenshaw et al. 1993; Wilkins ...
