Introduction to Course Teams

Steven Skerlos, Thurnau Professor of Mechanical Engineering, has become so well known among his colleagues as a deeply engaged and innovative teacher that his name has become for many of them a synonym for pedagogical success. His department has developed their own playful terminology: a “Skerlosian Effort” indicates a high score on the “Skerlosian Scale” of teaching effectiveness.

This video highlights Professor Skerlos discussing teams in a Sustainable Design course.  Hi explains using student teams and engaging each student in designing a sustainable system.  In teams, students bring complementary skills and multiple viewpoints into the design process.   Assigning students to teams and managing teams are also discussed in the video.
