Description

To enhance the Engineering Management course at The Citadel and improve the student learning environment, a wide variety of active learning techniques were employed. These included incorporating learning objectives directly into the teaching of the course material, employing web-based pre-class responses, student presentation of chapter topic, team building activity, parking proposal study project, administrating daily quizzes and formative assessments, group problem solving, case studies, debates, and a number of other active learning activities. A preand post-test was developed based on key concepts in engineering managements to assess the knowledge gained over the course of the semester. The pre-test was administered to measure student’s prior engineering management knowledge at the beginning of the term. The same short-answer test (post-test) was administered on the last day of semester to assess knowledge gained as a result of the course experience. This paper discusses the active learning techniques employed and the analyses of pre- and post-test results
