Cross-institutional Collaboration on Hybrid Engineering Courses among Institutions in New MexicoThis paper presents a two-year pilot project involving cross-institutional collaborations amongthe University of New Mexico (UNM), Northern New Mexico College (NNMC), and CentralNew Mexico Community College (CNM). The primary objective of this project is to leveragethe limited resources available in New Mexico (NM) to provide quality STEM undergraduateeducation to a larger student population. The immediate goal is to develop a pedagogy thatallows for demonstrable and repeatable success in this environment using a few targeted courses,with the longer-term goal of expanding the results of this research across all higher educationinstitutions in NM, and to any STEM-related discipline. The project focuses on the creation ofon-line instructional materials and pedagogy related to existing lower-division courses incomputing disciplines including Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, and InformationEngineering. Historically, these computer disciplines have mostly been taught independentlyfrom each other, at different departments and institutions. The fact that they all have overlap incontent results in duplicated offerings. Moreover, this duplication of offerings can be seen at alarger scale through the whole state of NM, where curriculums at distant schools in the samestate share significant knowledge units such as computer programming, logic design, etc. Thisproject consolidates course offerings across the state of New Mexico in computing disciplines.The project includes instructional on-line lecture materials, support structures, and a virtual labmodel that ensure same or better quality of learning than face-to-face offerings. Encouragingpreliminary results of shared courses in Computer Programming Fundamentals, Computer LogicDesign, and Circuit Analysis are included.
