Learning styles and critical thinking skills of engineering students
2017 Edition, November 1, 2017 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Learning styles reflect the behavior of students in determining preferences in learning situations. Students learn in various ways, such as by observing, listening, acting, reasoning, memorizing, and visualizing. Students also think in different ways, and critical...

Distributed Computing: The Unsung Hero of the Modern Global Economy
2018 Edition, Volume 37, July 1, 2018 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Invisible to all but small groups of elite practitioners, distributed computing (DC) is a foundational technology that undergirds much of the modern global economy. Hosted by massive data centers humming with thousands (or hundreds of thousands) of servers, DC facilitates...

Understanding Systems Thinking from the Perspectives of Experience and Diversity
2018 Edition, December 1, 2018 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Most real-life systems are complex and dynamic in nature. Systems thinking offer a way to formulate and solve such problems more effectively. In this study qualitative interviews were conducted with seven domain experts to understand their approach towards solving...

A Human–Machine Methodology for Investigating Systems Thinking in a Complex Corpus
Volume PP - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Systems thinking characterizes the paradigm needed to effectively design, maintain, and utilize systems. Prior work has shown that there is a language of systems thinking and that its presence can be quantified within text using supervised learning methods. Building on this...
