Ying Ying Seah is a Ph.D. candidate in Technology in the Department of Computer Information Technology at Purdue University. Her research interest mainly focuses on developing and validating novel curricular approaches and technology-enhanced learning environments in STEM education, integrating scientific and engineering thinking in the relevant disciplines. Specifically, her current project focuses on designing, implementing, and validating a Learning by Design curricular approach in science classrooms across education levels. Combined with a CAD design task, as well as argumentation scaffold, her research project aims to help students develop better argumentation skills as well as informed design decision-making skills. She has implemented this project in two middle schools in the Indiana's Tippecanoe county, a Physics course for pre-service teachers at Purdue University, and summer camps for Engineering Minority Program at Purdue University.

Abstract

This is a research paper. Investigating the use of design strategies is one of the most important approaches in understanding the design thinking processes of students in engineering design. Understanding students’ use of design strategies—specifically, generating ideas, conducting experiments, revising and iterating, and troubleshooting—allows educators to better help students improve in their design thinking processes. In this study, we aimed to investigate and characterize students’ use of four design strategies while they were designing with an educational CAD tool. Using students’ captured videos and think-aloud transcripts, we have identified and characterized patterns of students’ four design strategies. In this study, we have classified students into five categories based on their design patterns and descriptively identified the least and most prominent patterns students implemented
