NSF Grantee Presentation: Final Results of an Innovative Approach to Learning via Peer-to-Peer Undergraduate Mentoring in Engineering Technology LaboratoriesAbstractThe paper presents the final implementation of mentor-mentee meetings, concept mapping as atool of peer-to-peer learning, and hands-on laboratory practices.Outline of preparatory work includes: concept mapping training, mentorship training, hands-onlaboratory implementations, and assessment-related data collection methodology.(1) Concept mapping training has been provided by leader faculty in the department. In addition,learning experiences related with concept mapping has been presented. Mentors and researchassistant, laboratory teaching assistants, and most project faculty and staff have attended the one-day training.(2) Mentorship training has been inspired from the peer-led learning approach. A leadership androle model ideal has been taught to the mentors and the research assistant before their mentor-mentee meetings have started.(3) Hands-on laboratories have been deployed as part of the CLABS approach in the EngineeringTechnology Department.(4) Assessment-related activities such as “initial perception of students towards what a rolemodel can be” have been conducted. Also, demographic and background knowledge of studentshave been investigated to create a basis of this work.(5) Expansion of the project to implement in partner institutions will also be presented.This project has been funded by NSF-CCLI program grant number DUE 0737526.
