Learning Practices and Virtual Tools from University of Hartford Showcased on COMSOL.com
Over the past few decades, the field of education has transformed significantly. We have progressed from the classic blackboard and chalk to PowerPoint presentations and video learning tools. We are now in the midst of yet another advancement of the university classroom: learning and experimentation via virtual tools. Virtual tools such as simulations and simulation apps make complex scientific phenomena accessible for students.
Dr. Ivana Milanovic, professor of mechanical engineering in the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture (CETA) has been using inquiry-based learning and simulations in undergraduate mechanical engineering courses. This approach was explained and illustrated with examples of student work on COMSOL.com last month.
