BRIDGING THE GAP: from students’ visual competence to the thought processes of a liberal education

How do we build on students’ visual and technology skills—and their need to create—to cultivate higher-order thinking and analysis in the classroom? Using examples from engineering and liberal arts, Pezeshki and Racicot explore student and faculty colloquial knowledge starting points and the benefits and challenges of transitioning between literacies in a wired world.

Chuck Pezeshki is a professor in the School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering and director of the Capstone Industrial Design Clinic.Kelley Racicot is a graduate student in Teaching and Learning and the Global Engineering Design Center coordinator for the School of MME.
