Work in Progress:Development of Hands-on Desktop Learning Modules for Bioengineering Courses
2013 ASEE Annual Conference & Exposition Proceedings
Prof. Bernard J. Van Wie did his B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. and postdoctoral work at the University of Oklahoma where he also taught as a visiting lecturer. He has been on the Washington State University faculty for 30 years. For the past sixteen years he has focused strongly on innovative pedagogy and done technical research in biotechnology. His recent Fulbright Exchange to Nigeria set the stage for his receipt of the Marian Smith Award, an award given annually to the most innovative teacher at
... Dr. Nehal I. Abu-lail, Washington State University Dr. Olusola Adesope, Washington State University-Pullman Dr. Olusola O. Adesope is an assistant professor of Educational Psychology at Washington State University, Pullman. His research is at the intersection of educational psychology, learning sciences, and instructional design and technology. His recent research focuses on the cognitive and pedagogical underpinnings of learning with computer-based multimedia resources; knowledge representation through interactive concept maps; meta-analysis of empirical research, and investigation of instructional principles and assessments for engineering designs. Dr. Adesope holds a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology and a Abstract Current engineering courses heavily rely on traditional lectures to cover engineering concepts. The engineering education community, however, recognizes that this is not the best method for teaching engineering materials. Our team has focused on expanding the use of well researched, though still new to engineering, teaching pedagogies of hands-on, active and problem-based learning through the development of Desktop Learning Modules (DLMs).
