This event is free and sponsored by Digilent Inc. Many future engineering challenges will span two or more of the traditional engineering disciplines. For example, 3-D printing clearly involves electrical and mechanical engineering (not to mention material science/chemical engineering and computer science). In another example, the creation, deployment, and maintenance of autonomous vehicles similarly involve multiple disciplines. A common denominator for many of these challenges is the use of electrical circuits for sensing and interacting with the surrounding environment. Additionally, more and mo ... (continued)

In Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL), teams of three to five learners work on scripted inquiry activities and investigations designed to help them discover concepts and construct their own knowledge. Using assigned team roles and meta-cognition, learners develop process skills and individual responsibility. The instructor serves as a facilitator, not a lecturer. Studies over the last 20 years show that POGIL can significantly improve student performance. More information, including sample activities, is at http://pogil.org and http://cspogil.org.
