BUILDING THE ENGINEERING MINDSET: DEVELOPING LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT COMPETENCIES IN THE ENGINEERING CURRICULUM

Marnie Jamieson, John Donald
2020 Proceedings of the Canadian Engineering Education Association (CEEA)  
A knowledge base for engineering, science, and design is developed throughout most engineering programs.  ...  To address this gap, we suggest leadership and management training be carefully scaffolded in the same manner that technical competence has been stewarded in engineering programs and propose a framework  ...  These experiences, along with our engineering teaching, research, and practice experience have all formed and contributed to our thinking.  ...

The Use of Scaffolding Approach to Enhance Students' Engagement in Learning Structural Analysis

Djwantoro Hardjito
2010 International Education Studies  
This paper presents a reflection on the use of Scaffolding Approach to engage Civil Engineering students in learning Structural Analysis subjects.  ...  In this approach, after listening to the lecture on background theory, students are provided with a series of practice problems, each one comes with the steps, formulas, hints, and tables needed to solve  ...  As scaffolding approach is useful to teach the basic skills to develop students' competency in applying a new tool (Scaffolding as a Teaching Method n.d.), I decided to adopt this practice in teaching  ...
