EDU 5045 - Teaching Engineering: Context, Methods, and Assessment for P-12 Educators

Credit(s): 3

This course introduces participants to the role of engineering in society and to the engineering process as a distinct approach to problem solving.  Through an examination of the historical and sociological function of engineering across various specializations, the course provides a contextual perspective of engineering as a vital human pursuit.  Participants learn how to teach the engineering design process in youth settings to address real-world problems using basic quantitative reasoning, geometric applications, manipulatives, and digital applications.  We examine theories and research related to STE/AM curriculum, instruction, and assessment.  Issues of equity and social justice as elements of the instructional process are highlighted.  Assignments involve selecting, analyzing, and incorporating current peer-reviewed research.  (20 hours of fieldwork is required)
