As engineering instructors adopt new teaching strategies, many instructors face anxiety about how their students will respond to their new in-class instructional activities. The fear of student resistance to their new teaching strategy has been identified as a barrier by engineering instructors' adoption and continued use of active learning. This research project focuses on examining students' classroom expectations to explain student resistance to active learning in engineering classrooms. We have developed a survey instrument to study how students respond to in-class instructional practices (StRIP). Descriptive statistics, correlations, and regression models are used to draw conclusions about how students' expectations and perceived occurrence of in-class activities in the course have an effect on how students respond. The population surveyed involved four active learning courses from three different four year public universities (227 total students). Results suggest that there are three significant predictors of student response: expectations of passive instructions two weeks into the course, the perceived occurrence of group work, and the initial expectations of active instruction.

This paper was presented at the Mid Years Engineering Experience (MYEE) Conference, Spring 2016, College Station, Texas.
