Abstract

This paper describes the development, presentation, evaluation, student feedback, and recommendations of a graduate level course for engineering students titled "Active Learning in Engineering Education." The objective of the course was to provide engineering graduate students with information about the learning process and resources on teaching and academia to help them make informed decisions about teaching as a career and to help them be better teachers. We believe this course is unique because it provides a curriculum taught to graduate students by a graduate student. This work was funded by a Huckabay Teaching Fellowship, a program that provides support for teaching projects conducted by graduate students paired with mentors.
