Description: This proposal describes a project to develop and test new classroom materials for the Introduction to Materials course within the engineering curriculum that utilize an active learning, team-based approach. This pedagogy has been termed Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL), and is based upon the learning cycle model. Rather than sitting in traditional lectures, students work in teams to complete worksheets that guide them through the process of learning. In this way students are actively engaged in processing the information and have the opportunity to utilize and develop important skills such as teamwork, communication, and critical thinking. Assessment of the effectiveness of this approach is being conducted using measures of content knowledge through the Materials Concept Inventory and student self assessment of their learning through the Student Assessment of Learning Gains. Preliminary analysis of data from the MCI for a portion of the control group shows that there are significant gains in learning even in a traditional lecture class, and that the MCI appears to have some bias against women.
