Application of the nanoHUB tools in the Classroom
28 Jul 2011 | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska
This online presentation describes the application of the nanoHUB tools in the classroom.
Are Simulation Tools Developed and Used by Experts Appropriate Experimentation Tools for Educational Contexts?
08 Apr 2010 | Contributor(s):: Alejandra J. Magana, Sean Brophy,
Simulations and visualizations can lead to significant improvements in students'conceptual understanding. This increased understanding may be due to the formation of expert-like dynamic mental models. Laboratory simulations have been used in educational contexts forinquiry learning by allowing...
Backward Design for Instruction
07 Apr 2010 | Contributor(s):: Krishna P. C. Madhavan, Sean Brophy
Backward design is an instructional design process that focuses on what specific learning objectives need to be accomplished and how learning will be assessed appropriately before the instructional materials are designed. This design process is the complete opposite of what instructors typically...

Evaluating the Fermi Function at Ec + 0.02 eV
15 Oct 2013 | Contributor(s):: Tanya Faltens
This is a short animation explaining how to evaluate the fermi function, given a band diagram and an energy level of interest.
Framework for Evaluating Simulations: Analysis of Student Developed Interactive Computer Tool
25 Jun 2015 | | 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...
Framework for Evaluating Simulations: Analysis of Student Developed Interactive Computer Tools
21 Jul 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Kelsey Joy Rodgers, Heidi A Diefes-Dux, Krishna Madhavan
Computer simulations are discussed in the learning environment from two major perspectives: 1) teaching students how to build simulations and 2) developing simulations to teach students targeted concepts. This study is approaching learning with simulations from a different perspective. We are...
How engineering instructors use nanoHUB simulations as learning tools?
08 Apr 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Alejandra J. Magana
In this section we provide a description of two of the most frequent ways engineering instructors incorporate nanoHUB simulations as learning tools. In the supporting document section we provide case studies that describe in detail specific ways in which instructors have incorporated nanoHUB...
How People Learn 101: Theory and Practice
07 Apr 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Krishna P. C. Madhavan, Sean Brophy
One of the primary goals of the NCN Education and Assessment Group is to allow insights from engineering education research to diffuse into the engineering curricula. This resource is designed to provide faculty members designing a course using nanoHUB resources a quick introduction to the How...

Opportunities for Integrating nanoHUB Computational Simulations as Learning Tools
25 Feb 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Alejandra J. Magana
This presentation introduces a research agenda that focuses on identifying how to provide: (i) instructors with educational resources to help them better integrate nanoHUB computational simulation tools into their teaching and (ii) learners with adequate scaffolds (supports) to use computational...
Professors' Instructional Approaches and Students' Perceptions of nanoHUB Simulations as Learning Tools.
08 Apr 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Alejandra J. Magana, Sean Brophy,
Simulations can provide a critical element of learning experiences. Simulations are alsobecoming a critical part of computational science, which is being described as the thirdlegin this century's methodologies of science (Sabelli, et. al, 2005). Opportunities existto use the same simulation as...
Professor's and Student's Perceptions and Experiences of Computational Simulations as Learning Tools
04 Apr 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Alejandra J. Magana
Computational simulations are becoming a critical component of scientific and engineering research, and now are becoming an important component for learning. This dissertation provides findings from a multifaceted research study exploring the ways computational simulations have been perceived and...
