Case Study: Using Technology and Active Learning to Get Engineering Students Off to a Good Start | My Engineering Community The Pearson Team, My Engineering Community March 22, 2012 This story has a unique beginning. When Beth Stephan, a member of the Engineering faculty at Clemson University, started using her own materials to customize the content for the school’s general engineering program, she never expected it to evolve into a best-selling textbook. Stephan claims she “stumbled into it” by bumping into her Pearson representative one day in the lobby. Today, Thinking Like an Engineer – by Stephan, fellow Clemson faculty William Park, Benjamin Sill, and David Bowman, and Purdue University professor Matthew Ohland – is in its second edition. MyEngineeringLab, coming July 2012, fits right into the active learning approach. Ultimately, Stephan sees the combination of text + technology as a mixture each instructor needs to concoct themselves.
