Motivated by other recent work, we developed, implemented, and began assessment of an Inverted Classroom model for Engineering Statics at UPRM. [] Key Result Assessment results from a student survey and an administration of the Concept Assessment Tool for Statics (CATS) were generally positive. The class format, assessment methods, and assessment results are described. A discussion is also provided to indicate how the Inverted model might be implemented for use to unify the delivery of Statics at UPRM.

First Steps in Understanding Engineering Students' Growth of Conceptual and Procedural Knowledge in an Interactive Learning Context

TLDR
Students expressed significantly more cognitive activity on computer screens requiring interaction compared to text-based screens and verbalizations revealed that students applied predominantly lower-level cognitive processes when engaging these materials, and they failed to connect the conceptual and procedural knowledge in ways that would lead to deeper understanding.
