Prompts to Help Students Reflect on How They Approach Learning

Prompts to Help Students Reflect on How They Approach Learning | Engineering Teaching | Scoop.it
One of the best gifts teachers can give students are the experiences that open their eyes to themselves as learners. Most students don’t think much about how they learn. Mine used to struggle to write a paragraph describing the study approaches they planned to use in my communication courses. However, to be fair, I’m not sure I had a lot of insights about my learning when I was a student. Did you?

Active learning techniques becoming the new norm : Dean’s Report: Engineering

Active learning techniques becoming the new norm : Dean’s Report: Engineering | Engineering Teaching | Scoop.it

Many of these approaches can be grouped under “active learning,” a term referring to a wide number of teaching tools and strategies that share one important characteristic: they all actively engage students in the learning process, making them responsible for their learning, rather than having them passively receive information.

Tomorrow’s Professor eNewsletter: 1309. Active Learning – You Got Questions, We Got Answers | Tomorrow's Professor Blog

Sometimes at the end of a workshop, a participant suffering from information overload asks, "If I want to try just one thing you told us about, what should it be?" My answer is always active learning. For those who came in late, that means engaging students in course-related activities in class other than watching and listening to the instructor. They may be asked to answer a question, begin a problem solution or derivation or figure out the next step, explain a concept, interpret an observation, brainstorm a list, predict the outcome of an experiment, or any of a hundred other things.

Engineering Teaching's insight:

A chemical engineering professor talks about what you can do to engage students in active learning.

Unsettling Discoveries from Analysis of Engineering Education

Unsettling Discoveries from Analysis of Engineering Education | Engineering Teaching | Scoop.it

“Developing specialized knowledge should be central to engineering education. However, as we observed in sophomore engineering science courses through upper-division technical courses, the focus of the effort is largely on transmitting a body of knowledge, training students to apply this knowledge in solving well-posed problems. Yet, in professional practice, problems are rarely well posed. They require approximation and judgment—thinking at the highest level of reflection.” - See more at: http://www.facultyfocus.com/articles/teaching-and-learning/unsettling-discoveries-from-analysis-of-engineering-education/#sthash.ctCBxqoP.dpuf
