Are required courses meeting industry demands

In electrical engineering, the undergraduate curriculum is well defined but the course layout can cause students to lack the skills industry expects of interns and new full time employees. With their

Reversing the Trend of Engineering Enrollment Declines With Innovative Outreach, Recruiting, and Retention Programs

TLDR
An all-encompassing approach to increase the number of students in engineering through innovative outreach, recruiting, and retention programs to reverse the trend that has occurred across the U.S. over the last few years is discussed.

Blueprints for complex learning: The 4C/ID-model

TLDR
An overview description of the four-component instructional design system (4C/ID-model) developed originally by van Merriënboer and others in the early 1990s for the design of training programs for complex skills is provided.

Using practice theory to investigate professional engineers' workplace learning

TLDR
It is suggested that practice theory may provide organisations with an alternative perspective of workplace learning, inviting them to reconsider how professional learning is acknowledged, rewarded and fostered in organisations.
