Redesigning a junior-level electronics course to support engagement in scientific practices
written by H. J. Lewandowski and Noah D. Finkelstein
Building on successful work on studying and transforming our senior-level Advanced Lab course, we have transformed our junior-level Electronics course to engage students in a variety of authentic scientific practices, including constructing, testing, and refining models of canonical measurement tools and analog circuits. We describe our approach to the transformation, provide a framework for incorporating authentic scientific practices, and present initial outcomes from the project. As part of the broader assessment of these course transformations, we examine one course learning outcome: development of the ability to model measurement systems. We demonstrate that in the transformed course students demonstrate greater likelihood of identifying discrepancies between the measurement and the model and significantly greater tendencies to refine their models to reconcile with the measurement.
