Abstract

One challenge novice engineering educators face is teaching students who have varying levels of prior engineering experience or ability. A new variation of cooperative learning was introduced to meet this challenge. Cooperative learning techniques and lessons learned from this class may be extended to other courses with students of varying levels of preparation.
