Technology has been advancing rapidly over the past two decades. Particularly impressive is the electrical and computer engineering (ECE) disciplines that have led to the rapid advancement in cellular phones, wireless communication, embedded systems, 3D printers, and significant updates in the ECE curriculum in the recent years.
This Special Issue welcomes submissions of manuscripts from scholars focused on project- and design-based learning in ECE disciplines. In this Special Issue, we are interested in works of educators that challenge the status quo to better prepare the future generation of working professionals. Some examples of relevant work include:
- drafting multidisciplinary teams to solve open-ended, complex problems in teaching and learning,
- implementing project- and design-based learning,
- utilizing ECE technology to better deliver their course content,
- training educators in professional growth and content delivery.
In this Special Issue, “Project and Design-Based Learning in Electrical and Computer Engineering for K-16 Students and Teachers”, we are interested in submissions from elementary schools through graduate engineering programs and teacher preparation programs for Next Generation Science Standards. Research studies may involve both traditional classroom settings, as well as informal settings such as summer programs.
