Broadening student participation in electrical engineering with hands-on activities in theoretical courses

This project aims to design innovative hands-on active learning strategies to enhance student comprehension in Electrical Engineering courses. Often, upper-division electrical engineering curriculum is presented as dry theory that lacks substantive examples. A theory heavy curriculum relies on strong mathematical preparation and depends on students' intrinsic value and motivation. These assumptions do not hold true for students who do not enjoy the privilege of prior math preparation and for students who cannot afford to spend extra time in self-exploration of theoretical ideas. Thus, it is important to devise new electrical engineering pedagogical instruments. Two different kinds of research directions are possible: development of education hardware and educational technology that can engage students in new ways, and data analysis using mixed-methods to study the current EE education paradigm and the associated problems.
