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 ...

Unlike text-based input to an intelligent tutoring system, a diagram is perceived as a whole state; the operation sequence is less important. Traditional step-wise coaching is not as appropriate in diagram-based intelligent tutoring systems (DITS). From two previous tutoring systems, StaticsTutor and Thermo Cycle Tutor, we propose cross-domain pedagogical guidelines for DITS. In particular, instruction needs to be mapped to a hierarchical understanding of the diagram, where each level focuses on different characteristics of the drawing. Also, instruction needs to address conceptual knowledge and procedure expertise separately. Some practical suggestions are described to achieve these goals, such as 1) different ...
