Technological and Engineering Literacy/Philosophy of Engineering
Engineering 481 is a typical Technology and Society course that most engineering programs offer that covers, as listed on abet.org: “the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context.” It is a course all students take and can therefore have large numbers: 180 students in Fall and 240 in Winter. The course has a large end of term deliverable but in order to maintain attendance in class (class was at 6:30 pm and 8 am respectively) a lecture deliverable was added in the form of ‘question chits’ based on the revised Bloom’s taxonomy which redefines the cognitive domain as the intersection of the cognitive process dimension and the knowledge dimension (see page 3 of the following pdf: http://www.celt.iastate.edu/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/RevisedBloomsHandout-1.pdf). In each class a question was asked that corresponded to one of the 24 options in the revised taxonomy. Each question used a verb that generally referred to an action associated with the intended cognitive process and a noun that generally described the knowledge students were expected to acquire or construct. This work-in-progress paper will discuss this experiment and provide examples of questions posed.
