This workshop will provide an opportunity for fluids educators to discuss topics of mutual interest. Participants will have the chance to both share their successful techniques and learn from others during small group discussion at their tables. We will harvest "Best of the Table" highlights and the end of the workshop so that everyone in attendance comes away with something they can implement immediately in the classroom. A complimentary lunch will be provided.
- Prof. Brian Storey, Olin College of Engineering, “Introduction and overview of current trends in science and engineering pedagogy.”
- Small group discussion at each table:
- How much engagement is enough? We have a range in the community from traditional lecture to fully flipped classrooms – where on the spectrum are you? Where would you like to be?
- What’s the right balance between rigorous material coverage, development of general analytical skills, and student driven self-learning?
- What in-class active learning activities have you used? Share some of your favorites with your group, and generate a list to share with the larger group.
- A lot of undergraduates find their first fluids class a challenging one -- how can we overcome their initial fear towards fluids?
- Are there any online fluid’s education resources that you find particularly helpful? Share some of your favorites with your group, and generate a list to share with the larger group.
- Any other discussion topic your group prefers.
- Small group reports; end of workshop.
