    The objective of this project is to evaluate Keller's Personalized System of Instruction (PSI) in an appropriate course in engineering. This method is characterized by demanding unit perfection, being self-paced, using lectures only as motivational devices, and using proctors for most of the routine contact with students. In a rapidly advancing technology it is important to teach engineering stude... View full abstract»

    As an experiment in student-directed group research activity in an area of social relevance, a small interdisciplinary group of undergraduates engaged in a ten-week research seminar concerned with technical aids to the blind. The instructor played only a minimal role. Several projects were undertaken and many have been pursued, at the students' initiative, beyond the end of the seminar. Although t... View full abstract»

    This paper deals with a hyperbolic account of how scientific disciplines came into being and a means for dealing with the establishment of new academic programs. In the past, legitimate academic subject areas have been created by fission and fusion. Fission results when a single field of knowledge is fractionated into two or more fields that are formalized as new departments in colleges and univer... View full abstract»

    Does learning require repetition? What factors affect recall? How important is diagnostic testing? A generation ago learning psychologists based answers to such questions on Thorndikean formulations. In this paper a leading contemporary educational psychologist discusses the new theories and explains some of the provocative experiments on which they are based. View full abstract»

    The departmental library is discussed within the context of the university as a whole. The structure of the academic library is related to the structure of the parent institution. Departmental libraries are examined as to their performance for students and faculty. Detailed crnticisms of specific shortcomings are presented, illustrated from the author's experiences. The implications of departmenta... View full abstract»

    In this note a simple balanced RC bridge is used to illustrate the concepts of controllability and observability of a timeinvariant system. The student can use elementary circuit techniques on this example to understand the concepts of eigenvalues, eigenvectors, modes, controllability, and observability. View full abstract»
