By John Heywood

A synthesis of approximately 2,000 articles to aid make engineers higher educators

whereas an important physique of information has advanced within the box of engineering schooling through the years, a lot of the printed info has been constrained to scholarly journals and has now not discovered a extensive viewers. This ebook rectifies that scenario via reviewing the findings of approximately 2,000 scholarly articles to assist engineers turn into higher educators, devise more desirable curricula, and be more suitable leaders and advocates in curriculum and study development.

The author's first goal is to supply an illustrative assessment of study and improvement in engineering schooling due to the fact that 1960. His moment goal is, with the examples given, to inspire the perform of lecture room evaluate and examine, and his 3rd goal is to advertise the belief of curriculum leadership.

The book is split into 4 major parts:

* half II makes a speciality of the curriculum itself, contemplating such key concerns as content material association, developments, and alter. A bankruptcy on interdisciplinary and built-in examine and a bankruptcy on venture and problem-based versions of curriculum are included
* half III examines challenge fixing, creativity, and design
* half IV delves into educating, evaluation, and evaluate, starting with a bankruptcy at the lecture, cooperative studying, and teamwork

The ebook ends with a quick, insightful forecast of the way forward for engineering schooling. simply because it is a sensible software and reference for engineers, each one bankruptcy is self-contained and will be learn independently of the others.

Unlike different works in engineering schooling, that are quite often meant for tutorial researchers, this e-book is written not just for researchers within the box of engineering schooling, but in addition for all engineers who educate. All readers collect a bunch of functional abilities and information within the fields of studying, philosophy, sociology, and background as they particularly observe to the method of engineering curriculum development and assessment
