At the University of Arizona, the electrical and computer engineering faculty teamed up with English composition instructors and used process-oriented teaching strategies to teach a combined English/engineering course to freshmen. The six credit-hour course combined three credit hours of introductory engineering and three credit hours of English composition, both required courses in the curriculum. The combined course is a creative problem-solving class that emphasizes the use of critical reading, thinking, and writing as appropriate learning strategies for technical material. The authors found that the seminar/lecture/laboratory approach produced an increased awareness of learning processes and resulted in more collaborative learning and holistic thinking
