    • Learn by Doing – Foundational Courses: Studio ClassroomsOctober 2012 12
    • Studio ClassroomsOctober 2012 13
    • Studio Classrooms  Integration of lecture and lab.  Content presentation and experimentation flow into each other.  Content supports student interests, majors, critical and creative thinking, and developing life skills.October 2012 14
    • Chemistry for Engineers  What is the nature of materials?  How does chemical composition determine properties and potential uses?  How is chemistry important to the strength of materials, electrical systems, thermal properties, life of products, components of air, acidity of soil and water? How are these properties determined and measured?October 2012 15
    • Chemistry for Engineers Curriculum focuses on solid state and materials (for example, the chemical make-up of semiconductors) How do you analyze for organic compounds? Modern instrumentation for analysis  Current computer technology integrated with the following:  Data acquisition probes for pH, temperature, and voltage  Refractometers  Gas chromatographs  Visible and infrared spectrophotometersOctober 2012 16
    • Teacher Preparation – Studio Learn by Doing LabsOctober 2012 17

    • Student ResearchOctober 2012 20
    • Student Research: Dr. Chris Kitts, Biological Sciences 18 peer-reviewed publications, 16 with Cal Poly student co-authors 10 professional reports, all with student co-authors 59 undergraduates and 23 master’s students have presented at professional meetings around the United States and the world, including New Orleans, Monterey, Washington DC, Salt Lake City, Quebec, Montreal, Calgary, Cancun, Amsterdam, and Copenhagen. Students have presented at Cal Polys College of Science and Mathematics Research Conference.October 2012 21
    • Metrics – Survey Results 80% of freshmen and 87% of senior respondents report applying theories or concepts to practical problems or in new situations quite a bit or very much vs. 73/79% for the California State University (CSU) system. 63% of senior respondents report that they have done a practicum, internship, field experience, co-op experience, or clinical assignment vs. 40% for CSU. 28% of senior respondents report that they have worked on a research project with a faculty member outside of course or program requirements vs. 13% for CSU.October 2012 22
    • Metrics – U. S. News and World Report Rankings  Best public, largely undergraduate university in the western U.S.  College of Engineering: Best state-supported engineering program in the country  Computer, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering: best program at a public university nationwide  Civil and Aeronautical Engineering: second best program at a public university nationwideOctober 2012 23
    • Metrics – Other Distinctions Aeronautical industry ranked Cal Poly as the #1 preferred school for hiring. Architecture professionals ranked Cal Poly’s undergraduate program as fourth in the nation. Master’s in City and Regional Planning ranked first for universities that don’t offer a Ph.D.October 2012 24
    • Metrics – What Employers Say  High overall quality  High industry readiness  Cal Poly has high employment of its graduates compared to national averages.  Cal Poly is a recognized source of excellent students for masters and Ph.D. programs.October 2012 25
    • Learn by Doing – Concerns Expensive Often faculty members and students don’t immediately see the advantage. Are we really covering the material? Real Learn by Doing is student-centered whereas lecture is often faculty-centered. Some faculty members may feel a loss of control.October 2012 26
    • Learn by Doing – Advantages Students are actively engaged and invested in the learning process. Students take responsibility for learning and develop confidence in their knowledge and skills. Because they are actively engaged, students are able to use critical thinking skills and employ imagination and creativity. Students are introduced to the inquiry/discovery process.October 2012 27
    • Learn by Doing – Examples in Agriculture Event Management  Enterprise Project – Classes – Service Student responsible for learning classes, all aspects of a project, marketing projects, shares in the profits, engineering projects receives academic credit Enterprise Project  Commercial Project – Class – Student gains Student gains experience and is paid experience, receives academic credit but no  Volunteer – Student wage gains experience, no compensationOctober 2012 28
