名稱Female engineering students perceptions of college learning experiences: A qualitative case study in Taiwan
年度2015
類別期刊論文
摘要This study investigated female engineering students’ perceptions of college learning experiences by using the pipeline theory. One-hour qualitative interviews were conducted to obtain details of female engineering students’ learning experiences. Thirty female students of engineering from various engineering majors voluntarily participated in the study. The participants were senior college students from two public universities in Taiwan. Phenomenological qualitative analysis was used to identify five themes in ‘‘the motivation for pursuing an engineering major’’, seven themes in ‘‘learning experiences during higher education period’’, and four themes in ‘‘future career development’’. Overall, most of findings were supported by previous research results.

名稱An investigation of using wiki to facilitate group composition in learning engineering knowledge: A quasi-experimental study
年度2015
類別期刊論文
摘要The purpose of the study was to explore the effect of group composition by using wikis in classrooms. A wiki system was created for students to learn a chemical engineering theme. A quasi-experiment with pre-test and post-test design was adopted to fulfill the research question. The research participants were 116 eighth graders from three classes at a public junior high school in Taiwan. Students from three classes were divided into three types of group compositions: homogeneous, heterogeneous and natural selection groups. A criterion test defined as a learning achievement was developed to measure the students’ understanding of chemical engineering knowledge. The educational experiment lasted for six weeks. ‘Added contents directly related to the course’ and ‘modified contents from other groups’ were two online behaviors defined as wiki performances. The results showed that the effect of group composition did not influence the students’ learning achievements and wiki performances. Even though students, when engaging in wiki environments, in all homogeneous, heterogeneous, and natural selection groups achieved similar learning achievements of engineering knowledge, there were significant differences between their pre-tests and post-tests in all three groups. In particular, students in the heterogeneous group exhibited a better learning improvement than in the other two groups.

名稱 Prezi versus PowerPoint: The effects of varied digital presentation tools on students learning performance
年度2015
類別期刊論文
摘要This study investigated the effect of varied digital presentation tools (PowerPoint and Prezi) on the learning performance of students. The research focus was to evaluate how different presentation technologies used by class instructors affect the knowledge acqui- sition of students. A quasi experimental pre- and post-test control group design was adopted to fulfill the research purpose. The educational experiment was completed within 4 weeks. The participants were 78 fifth-grade students from a public elementary school in Taiwan. Students from three classes were divided into three treatment groups: PowerPoint instruction, Prezi instruction, and traditional instruction. Two quizzes (formative evalua- tion) directly related to learning units were administered to assess the immediate learning outcomes of the students after class. A learning achievement test (summative evaluation) was developed to measure the basic geographical knowledge of the students in a social science class. Two weeks after the summative evaluation was completed, the same learning achievement test with different item numbers (delayed summative evaluation) was employed to assess the long-term learning effects of the students. The results showed that Prezi was a more effective instructional medium for knowledge acquisition compared with traditional instruction. PowerPoint demonstrated instructional effectiveness on only the long-term learning retention of the students compared with traditional instruction. However, no significant difference was observed among the three types of tests in Prezi and PowerPoint instruction.

名稱Epistemological Beliefs of Electrical Engineering: A Case Study
年度2016
類別期刊論文
摘要This study investigates electrical engineering students’ engineering epistemological beliefs by using the Chinese version of the Epistemological Beliefs Assessment for Engineering (CEBAE). We recruited 468 electrical engineering students from two research-based universities in Taiwan. Prior to the study, confirmatory factor analysis and reliability testing involving 188 engineering students were performed to evaluate the validity and reliability of the CEBAE. The results revealed that Taiwanese engineering students in research-based universities had only slightly sophisticated engineering epistemological beliefs. Students’ educational backgrounds influenced their engineering epistemological beliefs. As the grade level progressed, students’ engineering epistemological beliefs became more sophisticated (with the exception of the third year). Female engineering students exhibited significantly more sophisticated engineering epistemological beliefs compared with their male counterparts.

名稱臺灣與美國工程及技術教育課程之比較研究
年度2016
類別期刊論文
摘要  近年來,為因應社會經濟轉變,國內技職教育不斷進行改革,其中以專科學 校改制及技術學院更名為科技大學最為明顯,但審視目前國內科技校院課程制定, 課程內涵與普通大學所訂定的標準相差無異,其課程發展亦不能體現技職教育所 倡議之務實致用的精神。本研究以工程領域為例,旨在探討臺灣及美國在工程及 技術教育課程的差異性,在文獻探討上,以美國工程及技術教育發展概念為本研 究的理論基礎;在研究方法上,採用 Bereday 四步驟比較分析模式,就不同分析點 比較臺灣與美國在工程及技術教育的課程架構。本研究針對比較結果,發現臺灣 工程領域的課程發展現況與美國之間有四大差異:一、課程內容缺乏明顯的規範 與標準;二、工程及工程技術教育的課程只共用一個標準;三、缺乏工程技術教 育的課程發展;四、工程及技術教育的數理及專業課程不因學制的不同而有明顯 的區隔。最後,提出七點建議,作為我國未來科技校院課程改革之參考。

名稱Utilizing 3D open source software to facilitate student learning of fundamental engineering knowledge: A quasi-experimental study.
年度2017
類別期刊論文
摘要This study explored the effect of Google SketchUp on students’ learning achievements in spatial visualization. A quasi-experimental with pre-test and post-test design was used to conduct the research. Eighty-four fifth graders from a publicelementary school in Taiwan voluntarily participated in the study. Students from different classes were divided into threeinstructional modules: Google SketchUp (with full features), Google SketchUp (with limited features), and traditionalinstruction (hand-held objects). Students in each of the three experimental groups were instructed to manipulate various3D objects that were created by a class teacher. A criterion test was developed to measure students’ understanding aboutbasic concepts of spatial visualization. The educational experiment was completed within three weeks. The results showedthat Google SketchUp (with full features) was an effective learning tool to support students in developing spatialvisualization skills (F 8.20, p 0.01).

名稱Elementary School Students’ Conceptions of Engineers:A Drawing Analysis Study in Taiwan
年度2017
類別期刊論文
摘要This study investigated elementary school students’ conceptions of engineers by conducting the Chinese-version of theDraw-an-Engineer Test (CDET) in classrooms. A mixed methods research methodology was adopted for achieving theresearch objective. In the quantitative part of this study, a content analysis method was used for analyzing students’drawing contents; in the qualitative part, a phenomenology approach was employed for collecting interview data. A totalof 750 Taiwanese students voluntarily participated in the study. Quantitative findings showed the presence of genderstereotypes of engineers, specific types of engineers, and major conceptions of engineers in the drawings. Qualitativefindings indicated that family members and mass media strongly influenced students’ conceptions. Overall, most findingswere supported by previous research results. However, the information on the proportion of stereotypes, types, andconceptions of engineers was unique to the current study

名稱新興科技提昇國小學童工程認知概念之研究:以EVS工具融入電機電子工程教育為例,工程與科技教育學術研討會,2016。
年度2016
類別研討會
摘要本研究旨在分析電子投票系統(EVS)對於國小學童在電機電子工程概念上的學習影響力。本研究採準實驗研究法探求研究問題,實驗設計採前測、後測與雙控制組的模式進行資料收集。研究對象為臺南市某國民小學80 名四年級學生。實驗教學內容含蓋「通路與斷路」、「燈泡的串聯與並聯」與「電池的串聯與並聯」三項。實驗開始前, 學生針對學習成就測驗進行前測。在實驗組中,學生接受電子投票系統教學;在控制組1 中,學生除接受傳統講述教學,教師另搭配課堂討論,誘導學生主動學習;而在控制組2 中,學生僅被動式接受教師的課堂教學。整體教學實驗共進行3 週,實驗結束後,立即進行學習成就後測。研究結果顯示,與傳統教學相比,電子投票系統顯著提升國小學童的工程學習概念。
