Problems at the nexus of Food, Energy and Water Systems (FEWS) are among the most complex challenges we face. Spanning simple to complex temporal, geographic, social, and political framings, the questions raised at this nexus require multidisciplinary if not transdisciplinary approaches. Answers to these questions must draw from engineering, the physical and biological sciences, and the social sciences. Practical solutions depend upon a wide community of stakeholders, including industry, policymakers, and the general public. Yet there are many obstacles to working in a transdisciplinary environment: unfamiliar concepts, specialized terminology, and countless “blind” spots. Graduate education occurs in disciplinary ‘silos', often ...

The Pedagogy Of Design And Technology At Xavier University Of Louisiana, New Orleans, Shayna Tova Blum

Faculty and Staff Publications

Abstract. Xavier University of Louisiana (XULA) is a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) university located in New Orleans, Louisiana. As a Historically Black University (HBCU), the university serves a diverse community of students in which many are first-generation, college graduates. Students enrolled in Design courses at XULA are studying in Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Art programs and majoring in subjects such as Computer Science, Physics, Mass Communication, Art, Business, and Science. The interdisciplinary student environment offers a unique opportunity for collaboration and peer learning, whereby students are able to share diverse perspectives on a topic by relating ...

Establishing A Link Between Electrodermal Activity And Classroom Engagement, Leslie Potter, J. Scallon, Daniel Swegle, Trevor Gould, Gül E. Okudan Kremer

Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Conference Proceedings and Posters

Technological and pedagogical advancements over the last three decades have significantly changed how students are taught in the industrial engineering classroom. However, changes in teaching do not necessarily equate to increased learning. How can we determine if classroom teaching methods and activities increase the engagement of students, which then may increase the amount of learning that is taking place? Research indicates that electrodermal activity (EDA) can predict engagement in a classroom setting. Assuming that students learn both better and more when they are engaged, we can use EDA to determine which classroom methods and activities are most effective. We measured ...
