Cope, Dale individual record
Associate Professor of the Practice
overview

My primary interest in engineering education is to learn about modern pedagogy practices in order to actively engage students in the classroom and help them better understand complex engineering concepts. While my specific objective is to assist students with mastering these concepts, my underlying goal is to have students master the learning process during their college academic career. The goal is to help turn the novice learners into expert learners where they want to learn, know how to learn strategically, and are well prepared for a lifetime of learning in the engineering career field.
