Tom Eppes, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering; Ivana Milanovic, professor of mechanical engineering, both in CETA; and H. Frederick Sweitzer, assistant provost and dean of faculty development, published an article in the Journal of College Teaching and Learning (TLC). TLC focuses on college-level teaching, learning, and administration. TLC is a widely cited, completely open access journal that is essential reading for academic education researchers and education professionals.
Their article, "Towards Liberal Education Assessment In Engineering And Technology Programs,"
describes the planning and actions taken to meet new accreditation
requirements in CETA's engineering and technology programs. The college
has expanded outcome assessment by including five "intellectual and
practical skills," specifically, critical and creative thinking,
inquiry/analysis, problem-solving, and information literacy. A framework
targeting the best opportunities to measure student achievement within
core courses is discussed as well as recent pilot results that focused
on three of the five skills.
