Through research, the Designing Education Lab has developed a variety of classroom learning tools. As part of our mission, we want to make these materials publicly available. Here are some of the materials we have developed:
- Solid Mechanics Concept Worksheets: This instrument is used in the class Introduction to Solid Mechanics (ENGR-14) as a student self-assesd measure of conceptual learning. Worksheets without Answers Worksheets with Answers
- Madison Longboard: This case study, lab worksheet and lecture visuals are used in Introduction to Solid Mechanics (ENGR-14) to introduce students to entreprenerial concepts within the context of core mechnaical engineering course work. Click on this link for more details and materials.
- Vector Calculus Modules: This tool is used in the class Introduction to Solid Mechanics (ENGR-14) by both faculty and students to assess vector calculus skills in the first weeks of the class to help identify those students who may need "math booster" assistance. Vector Calculus Module
- Educating Young Stem Thinkers: The course, which will span two quarters, introduces Stanford students to the design thinking process, the national conversations about the future of STEM careers, and provides opportunities to work with middle school students and K-12 teachers in STEM-based after-school activities and intercession camps. The course will be both theory and practice-focused: Syllabus
- D.Loft STEM ITEST: The purpose of this project is to introduce students to STEM engineering careers by leveraging the power of a design thinking approach to learning in school intersession camps. The project centers on the critical need to foster an interest in STEM careers, as it imperative for the United States to compete globally. A focus on innovation, creativity, critical thinking, problem solving, communication and collaboration is essential to prepare our students for the challenges of learning in the 21st century: iTest Statement of Work
