The goal of this project is to evaluate the applicability and efficacy of a collaborative learning environment for high voltage (HV) engineering education. This environment is based on the interaction of two pedagogical approaches: computer simulation and experimental/laboratory work. Two courses on HV engineering were offered in parallel in the Fall 2018 semester – one taught at Western Michigan University focusing on computer simulation and the other one taught at Mississippi State University focusing on experimental/laboratory work.


Dr. Pablo Gomez, from Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Dr. Edmund Tsang, Professor Emeritus from Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, shared this poster at the 2019 WMU Assessment in Action Conference on March 15. They were the recipients of one of the 2018-19 WMU Assessment Fellows Grants to conduct research on assessment of student learning outcomes.
