Session Title

Blended Learning Technology in Engineering Curriculum

Session Format

Round-table Discussion (45 minutes)

Location

Room 212

Abstract for the conference program

Engineering courses are traditionally packed with content that students are expected to work through on their own with little to no interaction with a faculty member. Today’s curriculum is moving more towards active learning, hands on. With this movement, there is even less time in class for theoretical content which is still needed. This shift suggests a needed to utilize other methods of engaging students online in the theoretical content. These online tools and techniques are being used in blended learning and could be adapted for this purpose. Some examples of tools to be considered are a learning management system, Padlet, and Google Docs. On open discussion on how these tools are being used and how their application would be valuable to engineering courses.
