    This paper describes that portion of an undergraduate laboratory course in which the layout of an active, thick film hybrid circuit is designed and the circuit is fabricated. Design and fabrication procedures are presented together with suggestions for alternative means of accomplishing the same or similar tasks. It is shown that only a modest amount of specialized equipment is required. View full abstract»

    A successful, student oriented, minimum super-vision, thick-film microcircuit laboratory is described. Key laboratory processes and examples of student projects are illustrated. In the laboratory, emphasis is placed on the use of thick-film technology as a design medium which enables the student to relate theoretical models to real world problems. Laboratory organization is discussed and sources o... View full abstract»

  • Measuring Teaching Effectiveness

    Publication Year: 1973, Page(s):138 - 142
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1151 KB)

    In order to maintain a high quality of instruction at colleges and universities there must be a means of measuring teaching effectiveness. Four factors for evaluation are mentioned, namely: (1) delayed student opinions; (2) opinions of colleagues; (3) achievement on examinations; and (4) achievement in subsequent courses. A detailed description is given of the procedures for and experiences on a r... View full abstract»

    This paper describes an attempt to teach physical electronics with the aid of interactive use of the computer by students. The aim was to increase student motivation and retention while minimizing the amount of time spent on the mechanics of programming and terminal operation. An essential part of this was to use display terminals to present much of the information graphically. Six prepackaged pro... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a laboratory developed to accompany a course in communications theory. The laboratory program is based on the use of building block modules, corresponding to the standard elements found in communication systems. The use of such modules enables the students to model complete systems without becoming involved in detailed problems of circuit design. The module system is described... View full abstract»

    When students are introduced for the first time to electromagnetic theory, it is either presented as a set of separate aspects like electrostatics, magnetostatics, slow and fast varying fields etc., or in the unified form of Maxwell's equations. In the first case, students are likely to consider the different aspects as physically different phenomena, whilst in the last case, the mathematical form... View full abstract»

  • Design-Oriented Approach to Learning

    Publication Year: 1973, Page(s):157 - 160
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (986 KB)

    This paper describes an instructional method that has been tried with remarkable success in some traditionally theoretical senior-level and graduate courses. The objective of the instructional approach is to enable the students to tackle practical design problems and carry the solution to the stage of prescribing enough details to fabricate the "product" if need be. In class contact the subject ma... View full abstract»

  • Noise and Interferences in Electrical Networks-An Undergraduate Experiment

    Publication Year: 1973, Page(s):161 - 166
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3547 KB)

    The topic of noise and interferences in electrical networks is seldom discussed at the sophomore or junior levels. Electrical Engineering students, however, may encounter interference problems in their first laboratory course. Practical techniques of noise minimization in measurement setups are usually considered a work of art rather than a topic that can be methodically introduced. This paper des... View full abstract»

  • Coordinating Lecture and Laboratory Using Self-Paced Instruction

    Publication Year: 1973, Page(s):166 - 169
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1217 KB)

    This paper describes an application of self-paced instruction (SPI) to a combined lecture-laboratory course in logic circuits. The results of this effort show the SPI approach to require less faculty time than the conventional lecture approach. The student time required is approximately comparable by either method. The paper concludes with comments on the procrastination problem. View full abstract»

    This paper describes some results of a course in network analysis taught to all electrical and mechanical engineering sophomores at the University of New Hampshire. The report covers two years experience with the course. The first year (spring 1971) forty students took the course under an individually prescribed instruction approach (IPI) while fifty students were taught with the standard lecture-...

  • Aperture Antennas Simulation by Computer for Undergraduate Engineering Work

    Publication Year: 1973, Page(s):171 - 173
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (608 KB)

    Aperture antenna theory usually produces integrals for radiation patterns which are difficult to evaluate. One resort is to complement the formal teaching by a computer simulation of the radiation due to a line source with arbitrary excitation. Suggested exercises will lead the student to acquire knowledge of various effects in practical aperture type antennas. The program allows several input mod... View full abstract»
