Educational needs of the students attending today’s universities are changing. New and experienced faculty need to be prepared to address students that exist in world of free information, have access to multiple technical information sources and desire high levels of stimulation. The challenge is to help students learn critical thinking skills by utilizing resources that are at their finger tips. Reality learning challenges student to use knowledge and comprehension to explore engineering…

Reaching Higher Order Thinking in Mechatronics using a Controller Comparative Study

A project in the authors' semester-based mechatronics course where students must uniformly evaluate two automatic control methodologies for an application without explicit performance criteria or experimental procedures is developed, strengthening the higher-order thinking skills of graduates.

Stimulating Higher Order Thinking in Mechatronics by Comparing PID and Fuzzy Control

A project is developed in this semester-long mechatronics course where students must evaluate two automatic control methodologies for an application without being given explicit performance criteria or experimental procedures, and students discover that creating a comparative study is nontrivial.

Applying Project Based Learning to Flipped Bloom Taxonomy for Deep Understanding in Control Systems

This paper takes a look at control theory as subject cut across various engineering field and has a wide background that students must really be comfortable with, and goes further into traditional method of teaching, Project Based Learning Blooms Taxonomy and proposes applying Flipped Bloom Taxonomy to Project -based learning for a deep understanding of control systems.
