Integration of Professional Skills and Academic Content during Co-op Semesters via Distance Learning Modules: Review of Results from a Pilot Program
School of Engineering
Padnos College of Engineering and Computing
Distance-learning modules, with content coverage of professional skills and ABET-required outcomes, were developed and delivered during co-op semesters. The modules covered engineering ethics and professionalism, communication, engineering economy, and project management. Content of the modules was selected to enhance the experience of the student in the workplace, providing a unique opportunity for the students to apply what they were learning. The scaffolded curriculum was designed to accommodate the logistics of three, mandatory co-op semesters and the maturity level of the students. This session will discuss results from the pilot program run during 2011.
