Abstract

The study examined three engineering courses that were offered in the Fall 2001 at Greenfield Coalition in order to facilitate the changing role of instructors. These three courses, as other Greenfield courses, with its learner centered instructional strategies and technologically enhanced activities, were designed to have the instructor function more as a facilitator, mentor, and coach rather than the typical stand-up instructor. This study documented the instructional strategies and learning activities that helped instructors transition from a traditional standup instructor to a "guide on the side." In addition, this study identified factors that affected the successful implementation of instructional strategies and technology and also suggested ways to assist instructors to implement technologically enhanced and learner-centered strategies.
