Chen, Huai-Yi; Wu, Chien-Ming; Lai, Chiung-Hui – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: Prior studies indicate that students experimenting with characterization of optical planar waveguides use expensive ready-made prism couplers without clear understanding about construction of the entire optical measurement system. This paper presents a cost-effective modified bright-mode prism coupler that helps students learn…

Tamburri, Damian Andrew; Casale, Giuliano – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: This paper quantifies the phenomenon of more versus better research output in computing research education and elaborates on how the organizational variable known as cognitive distance plays a fundamental role in mediating such more versus better research output relation. Background: To improve the current educational system,…

Gamo, Javier – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: There are many on-line resources available to learn about optics and photonics, but no assessment tools exist to evaluate the learning achievements. This paper presents an assessment framework whose validity has been proven on a course with over 70 engineering students. Background: There is evidence that on-line resources complement…

Sapounidis, Theodosios; Stamovlasis, Dimitrios; Demetriadis, Stavros – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: Prior studies on tangible versus graphical user interfaces have reported controversial findings concerning children's preferences. This paper shows that their preference profiles in the domain of introductory programming are associated with gender and age for both interfaces. Background: The relevant literature mainly consists of…

Bernhard, Jonte; Carstensen, Anna-Karin; Davidsen, Jacob; Ryberg, Thomas – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: This paper reports engineering students ' practical epistemic cognition by studying their interactional work in situ. Studying "epistemologies in action" the study breaks away from mainstream approaches that describe this in terms of beliefs or of stage theories. Background: In epistemology, knowledge is traditionally seen…

Rennick, Christopher; Hulls, Carol C. W.; McKay, Kenneth N. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: A semester-long, open-ended design project was implemented to promote intellectual development of first-year students while reinforcing event-driven/procedural programming principles. This paper describes this approach, and an evaluation strategy using Perry's model for intellectual development. The results show that students can…

Debiec, Piotr – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2018
In the Internet era, students have increasingly lost interest in traditional lectures; as a consequence, their learning motivation and exam performance have decreased. The widespread adoption of learner-centered teaching methods that address this issue faces certain barriers, including: 1) the significant faculty effort necessary to prepare…

Garduño-Aparicio, Mariano; Rodríguez-Reséndiz, Juvenal; Macias-Bobadilla, Gonzalo; Thenozhi, Suresh – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2018
This paper presents a robot prototype for an undergraduate laboratory program designed to fulfill the criteria laid out by ABET. The main objective of the program is for students to learn some basic concepts of embedded systems and robotics, and apply them in practice. For that purpose, various practical laboratory exercises were prepared to teach…

Marques, Maira; Ochoa, Sergio F.; Bastarrica, Maria Cecilia; Gutierrez, Francisco J. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2018
Carrying out real-world software projects in their academic studies helps students to understand what they will face in industry, and to experience first-hand the challenges involved when working collaboratively. Most of the instructional strategies used to help students take advantage of these activities focus on supporting agile programming,…

Lacave, Carmen; Molina, Ana I.; Redondo, Miguel A. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2018
Contribution: Findings are provided from an initial survey to evaluate the magnitude of the recursion problem from the student point of view. Background: A major difficulty that programming students must overcome--the learning of recursion--has been addressed by many authors, using various approaches, but none have considered how students perceive…

Kim, Yeon; Ahn, Changsun – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2018
Contribution: This paper illustrates how to design and implement curricula in terms of the combined use of flipped learning and inquiry-based learning in an engineering course. Background: Elementary courses in engineering schools are conventional and foundational, and involve a considerable amount of knowledge. Throughout such courses, students…
