Framework for Evaluating Simulations: Analysis of Student Developed Interactive Computer Tool
25 Jun 2015 | Presentation Materials | Contributor(s): Kelsey Joy Rodgers, Heidi A Diefes-Dux, Yi Kong, Krishna Madhavan
This is the presentation for a paper presented at the 2015 annual American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE) conference. The paper discusses a developed framework for evaluating and scaffolding student-developed simulations in an open-ended learning environment. The full paper...
Mathematical Models and Simulations Workshop Presentation
10 Mar 2015 | Presentation Materials | Contributor(s): Kelsey Joy Rodgers, Heidi A Diefes-Dux, Krishna Madhavan, Yi Kong
Developing engineers for a changing world presents a greater need for students to understand simulations. Understanding mathematical models and simulations are skills that all engineers need for industry and research, but many engineering students lack a conceptual understanding of how to develop...
Work-in-Progress: First-Year Engineering Students' Self-Reported Knowledge of Nanotechnology – The Development of a Coding Scheme
11 Nov 2014 | Papers | Contributor(s): Oguz Hanoglu, Kelsey Joy Rodgers, Yi Kong, Krishna Madhavan, Heidi A Diefes-Dux
Different types of instruction are used at the college-level for increasing students’ knowledge of nanotechnology. Purdue University introduced nanotechnology to first-year engineering students in an introductory engineering course through two nanotechnology-related projects. The students...
First-Year Engineering Students' Nanotechnology Awareness, Exposure and Motivation Before and After Educational Interventions
11 Nov 2014 | Papers | Contributor(s): Yi Kong
Educational interventions in first-year engineering programs can positively affect students’ awareness of nanotechnology by introducing students to basic nanotechnology concepts and motivating them to follow nanotechnology-related career paths. The research question examined in this study...
Development and Validation of a Nano Size and Scale Instrument (NSSI)
11 Nov 2014 | Papers | Contributor(s): Yi Kong, Heidi A Diefes-Dux, Kelsey Joy Rodgers, Anna Douglas, Krishna Madhavan
The concepts of size and scale are fundamental to nanotechnology education but can be difficult for beginning undergraduate students to grasp. It is important to develop curricular interventions to increase students’ conceptual understanding of size and scale, before moving on to more...
