Koch, Robert; Kucsera, John; Angus, Kathryn Bartle; Norman, Kimberly; Bowers, Erica; Nair, Pradeep; Moon, Hye Sun; Karimi, Afshin; Barua, Susamma – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2018
Academic programs targeted for first-time students can help their persistence in STEM majors. Our project, ASCEND STEM, included three first-year experiences (FYEs) designed to offer students the skills that would help them successfully traverse potential barriers to academic success. In the FYEs, we sought to strengthen the learning power,…

Murray, Susan L.; Phelps, Julie; Altabbakh, Hanan – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2018
It is common for college classes to contain basic information that must be mastered before learning more difficult concepts or applications. Many students struggle with learning facts, terms, or fundamental concepts; in some situations, students are even unsure about what they should study. Flashcards are a well-established educational aid for…

Chou, Karen C.; Moaveni, Saeed; Sapp, James D. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2017
The integrity of a structural system depends on the strength of materials, shape of the individual member and the elements used to hold the members together. In most undergraduate civil engineering curricula, a structural steel and/or reinforced concrete design course is required. Usually, the main focus of these courses is on member selection…
