Project Summary

This application proposes the development of weekly on-line material, including weekly videos and assignments, for two undergraduate courses offered by the department of civil engineering.

The first course, entitled “Civil Engineering II” (CIVL 202), is a core 2nd year course in the civil engineering professional program. The second course, entitled “Environmental Stewardship and Engineering” (CIVL 498A), is an engineering technical elective available to all engineering students.

Both CIVL courses will be modified to align their weekly learning activities with those currently used in the UBC engineering first year program. These learning activities include an on-line video tutorial and an on-line assignment, an in-class team-test then in-class team activities, and a weekly in-class tutorial.

The in-class activities and in-class tutorials are being developed by the CIVL 202 and CIVL 498A course instructor. TLEF support will enable the deployment of weekly video tutorials and assignments in both these courses.
