Profs. Zhaoshuo Jiang from the College of Science & Engineering and Zahira Merchant from the Graduate College of Education developed and implemented a new approach for teaching engineering laboratories and assessed its effectiveness in advancing student learning. In this project, we harnessed the power of mobile technology and Internet of Things to develop a mobile laboratory learning module for engineering students to master theory by using practical examples and physical experimentation through interactive apps. The developed module was applied as a flipped laboratory to an undergraduate course in Fall 2016 and will be applied in the upcoming Fall 2017 semester.
