EED 509 — Field Experiences in Engineering Education
[Summer 2024] This course in engineering education focuses on evidence-based pedagogical methods that leverage teaching methodologies that can be used to link across cultures, classrooms, and various learning environments. Students will learn how engineering interplays with other subject areas and learn how to teach these subject areas through engineering activities. Other topics include how to teach in under-resourced settings, how to teach diverse groups, and how to create effective teaching resources under suboptimal conditions. Students will work to understand how engineering impacts economic advancement in relation to their course of study.

Summer offerings are through study abroad and take place in Rwanda.
