Using Technology Tools to Innovate Assessment, Reporting, and Teaching Practices in Engineering Education

Book Description

Many can now conclude that utilizing educational technologies can be considered the primary tools to inspire students to learn. Combining these technologies with the best teaching and learning practices can engage in creativity and imagination in the engineering field. Using Technology Tools to Innovate Assessment, Reporting, and Teaching Practices in Engineering Education highlights the lack of understanding of teaching and learning with technology in higher education engineering programs while emphasizing the important use of this technology. This book aims to be essential for professors, graduate, and undergraduate students in the engineering programs interested learning the appropriate use of technological tools.
