Description

The goal of this workshop is to introduce an approach to learning and assessment that has been helpful in promoting problem solving in our program; review the system, scaffolding, and rubric used by our program; and discuss future opportunities to expand the use of the structure into other STEM cornerstone courses. The CU Thinking PROCESS was developed for use in a first-year engineering fundamentals course to promote strong problem solving skills and strategies. The system fosters the growth of cognitive and metacognitive skills associated with successful problem solving solutions while providing structure for communication between student and instructor.
