This hands-on workshop will cover how to both use existing problems and develop new problems for WeBWorK. WeBWorK is an open online homework system, which was developed for math and is increasingly being used for engineering courses. Facilitated by instructors who are developing problems and using WeBWorK in their courses, this workshop will allow participants to acquire the key knowledge needed to start developing and contributing their own problems to the public problem bank known as the Open Problem Library. We hope to generate momentum in the engineering community to eventually build substantial problem banks for all disciplines/subjects in engineering.
