dB-SERC lunch discussion: Monday, February 4
Topic: The Ohio State Honors Robotics Project Through STEM Education Research Lenses
When: Monday, February 4 from 12 - 1 pm
Where: 321 Allen Hall
The next dB-SERC lunch discussion will take place on Monday, February 4 from 12 - 1 pm in 321 Allen Hall. During the lunch, Dr Kathy Harper from Ohio State University will share the details of a course designed based on a variety of educational research. We look forward to seeing you there!
The Fundamentals of Engineering for Honors program at The Ohio State University was developed so that first-year students contemplating engineering could solidify their understanding of what engineering is, the kinds of activities engineers engage in, and the elements of engineering design. In the second semester, the most popular course option is the design-and-build robotics course. The class has been developed to give students a fairly complete picture of an engineering project, including planning, budgeting, documentation, and of course the technical aspects of designing, programming, constructing, and testing a robot. This project, which has been around for nearly 25 years, has a tradition of incorporating educational research, both by basing course refinements on results in the science education literature and also by assessing the impact of course modifications on the student and teaching assistant experiences. This presentation will give an overview of the project and provide multiple examples of how educational research has guided the development of the course. STEM instructors of all disciplines will see applicability to their own courses.
