Guided Discovery in Mechanical Engineering

  • Mechanical Engineering (Course 2)


Emanuel Sachs

Digital Innovations & Tools: 

  • Active Learning

Prof. Sachs uses guided discovery in engineering science to teach synthesis and analysis skills to engineers. Great engineers are able to loop between the two quickly. Sachs leads students to discover physical principles through active learning and hands-on activities. When students create their own knowledge scaffold, they are more likely to remember it.
