Building Microskills for Effective Engineering Communication
MetadataShow full item record
A set of skills has been identified for developing engineering communication based on a model called the Microskills Hierarchy (Ivey and Ivey, 2003). These microskills are implemented through instructional and learning materials for both faculty and students. The goal is to implement this approach beginning in Winter 2012. The current challenge is related to assessing the effectiveness of the microskills for communication and teamwork outcomes in the context of authentic engineering scenarios.
