Development Of Course Modules For Materials Experiments, Kristen P. Constant, K. Vedula

Materials Science and Engineering Conference Papers, Posters and Presentations

Recent U.S. government-sponsored studies of the decline of international competitiveness have reported that one of the most severe problems is the lack of education of future engineers in synthesis and processing of advanced engineered materials. In response, the National Science Foundation has made awards 6 universities to develop materials processing course materials for improving processing education. Iowa State University is among those selected.

At Iowa State University in the early 1980's the first engineering course, Engineering Problem Solving, began inca"porating FOR1RAN programming in an integrated, three semester credit course. At first this course was taught in "dry lab" style with the students assigned to fmd keypunch tenninals outside of class in order to create and edit their programs. Soon after that the course switched to interactive VAX terminals and the first classroom/laboratory was born. This room allowed for a terminal for each pair of students and in~class programming assignments. The engineering problems content was also "dry~labbed" at first ...

Engineering education techniques have been changing at a tremendous pace over the past several years; a significant portion of these changes have been to recruit and retain women in engineering programs. Iowa State University is committed to these changes in engineering education and is implementing new programs for high school and undergraduate women interested in science and engineering related fields. The Program for Women in Science and Engineering (PWSE} began offering paid internship programs for both high school and undergraduate female students in 1987, with the objective to provide research experiences for talented women and to build their confidence in ...


Best Practices In High-Tech Learning, Sanjival S. Gill, Lawrence Genalo Jun 1995

Materials Science and Engineering Conference Papers, Posters and Presentations

The Synthesis Coalition, one of the flfSt two engineering coalitions funded by the National Science Foundation in 1990, is comprised of Berlceley, Cal Poly at San Luis Obispo, Cornell, Hampton, Iowa State, Southern, Stanford, and Tuskegee. One of the major goals of the coalition was to create the National Engineering Educational Delivery System (NEEDS). This system consists of a multimedia, indexed database where engineering lessons, modules and images are stored for retrieval, courseware studios to create and modify multimedia courseware, and hightechnology delivery systems (learning environments) for appropriate display of th e material [1-3].


The Effect Of Learning Problem-Solving Methods On Learning To Program In The Basic Language , Yen-Chu Hung Jan 1995

The Effect Of Learning Problem-Solving Methods On Learning To Program In The Basic Language , Yen-Chu Hung

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

This study was designed to compare learning problem-solving methods versus non problem-solving activity (word-processing) on subsequent learning to program in the BASIC language. It also examined a method to provide students with increased knowledge and skills to enable them to learn how to program;A pretest-posttest control group design was used in this experiment with random assignment of subjects to one of three groups. Experiment groups one (deduction group) and two (induction group) first received the pretest and learning problem-solving methods; then group one received deduction instruction while group two received induction instruction, both followed by learning BASIC language programming ...
