Course: ELEC 390: Fundamentals of Electromagnetics
Faculty: Alan Cheville
DP&S Liaison: Brianna Derr
Date: Spring 2014
Students in Alan Cheville’s Elec 390: Fundamentals of Electromagnetics are learning AND teaching in different ways. Professor Cheville asked his students to create two-minute videos explaining various Electromagnetic formulas such as transmission lines, fundamentals of electricity and magnestism, and energy propagation. The target audience for these videos are undergraduate students studying Electromagnetics. In order to accommodate various modes of learning, students were required to include at least four different forms of representations, such as diagrams, graphs, formulas, and animations. Students also used stop-motion animation, VideoScribe, and Chroma Key screens or a Green Screen to add a creative twist to learning and teaching.
