Engineering work involves constant deliberation, yet little effort is invested in most programs to provide a well-structured framework for engineering deliberation. The following paper presents how engineering students learn the virtue of professional and moral deliberation through various educational activities in the course Ethics in Engineering at the(More)
In its continued quest for excellence in engineering education, the College of Engineering at the University of Puerto Rico-Mayagüez (UPRM) has unified accreditation activities, formal studies in engineering education, and work on social, ethical, and global issues under a holistic umbrella in the reformed Office for Strategic Engineering Education(More)
Previous studies indicated that misconceptions related to heat transfer, fluid mechanics, and thermodynamics, persist among engineering juniors and seniors even after they completed college-level courses in these subjects. Researchers have proposed an innovative instructional approach, the ontological schema training method, which helps students develop(More)
Motivated by other recent work, we developed, implemented, and began assessment of an Inverted Classroom model for Engineering Statics at UPRM. The model consists of (1) a set of pre-Lecture Modules and Exercises, delivered online; (2) a Lecture that responds to the students' experience in the preLecture activities, and (3) a Problem-Solving Session after(More)
The Concept Assessment Tool for Statics is a concept inventory instrument designed to detect errors associated with important and difficult statics concepts. This paper discuses findings from a previous study in which the Arpeggio Software, used to determine the cognitive capability of an assessment instrument, was applied to the concept inventory. Based on(More)
