Description

Measuring student growth in their problem-solving capabilities becomes challenging when venturing beyond ‘the right answer and procedure’. Defining problem-solving quality parameters is key in the process of assessing and improving teaching techniques. A video capture problem-solving assignment is developed and employed in a food engineering course to understand the following items: 1) Are students able to employ effective strategies taught in class? 2) What are the changes needed in teaching the mechanics of problem-solving to students? This session presents the details of the approach with key findings to discuss its benefits and drawbacks for future adoptions
