Development, Deployment and Assessment of a New Paradigm for Transportation Professionals and University Students: a Collaboration of the Region X Transportation Consortium

Christopher Monsere, Portland State University

Summary:

Traditionally, engineering coursework has been delivered in a lecture-based format with accompanying exercises assigned for time outside of class. The activity-based approach to learning aims to keep students engaged in and responsible for their own learning processes. This approach has been shown to be more effective than conventional teaching approaches in terms of long-term retention of the educational material.
