Event Details:

Hands-On Learning to Make Theory Reality

Facilitated by  Ken Hara (Assistant Professor, Aeronautics and Astronautics) and Sonia Travaglini (Skilling & Learning Specialist, Aeronautics and Astronautics)

It is common for students to be asked to demonstrate their understanding of theoretical concepts by applying them to idealized situations in problem-sets or papers. AA100: Introduction to Aeronautics and Astronautics—a course that covers the basics of aeronautics and astronautics—used to be no different. In this session, we describe how, based on student feedback over several years, we redesigned the course around an aircraft project. The hands-on project gives students an opportunity to learn through "trial and error" in a real-world setting how fundamental theory infuses engineering design processes. 

Join us to discuss how you might incorporate real-world contexts into your own course activities and assignments to help your students engage and learn better.
