Integration of Experiential Learning

To Develop Problem Solving Skills in Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students

This work seeks to implement these strategies to address directly the obstacles faced by DHH students in acquiring problem-solving skills. We propose to develop a highly-interactive lab experience with the corresponding instructional approach and materials that overtly demonstrates the critical variables of a real-world engineering problem to ensure that students appreciate the factors necessary to solve a variety of problems presented to them. The lab experience will be conveyed in a way to leverage the increased visuospatial memory that is a strength of many DHH students. It is anticipated that such approach will allow the DHH student to make meaningful connections between the context and the problem solving methods that enable them to transfer and apply them on different settings.
