Abstract

The Capstone Design Course instructional team was selected to participate in the digital learning initiative at the University of Alberta. The goals of this initiative are to increase student engagement and promote flexible, independent learning. The objectives of the instructional team were to enhance the interactions between instructors and student design teams in the face of increasing enrolment and to align the course strategically with attributes expected for graduating engineers set out by the University of Alberta and elaborated in the Canadian Engineering Accreditation
Board (CEAB) Guidelines. Existing course lecture materials were redeveloped into an asynchronous online format for individual student engagement. Related inclass team-learning activities were prepared and
implemented. This report focuses on the design of online learning elements connected to in class active learning and project applications and our experiences with them over the course of a two-year pilot project. This paper is a follow up to “The University of Alberta Chemical Engineering Capstone Design Course Goes Flipped!”
