Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge What's on your mind? (ITERATE) - Section 4: Operationalizing design mindsets


We frequently operationalize variables in this course.  As formative assessment, today I deliberately do not model operational definitions.  While many students were able to create operational definitions without a problem, many students struggled.  I am thinking that I may have students to create small wallet sized reference cards to track examples of frequently used course skills.  Developing a "how might we?" question would fit here.  So too would operational definitions.  Attached to this reflection is a resource I developed with a colleague, Mr. Andrew Fixell, that many students have found to be useful for better understanding operational definitions.

What's on your mind? (ITERATE)

Unit 1: "Unit 0": Engineering design thinking
Lesson 7 of 12

Objective: Students will be able to: 1) Define design mindsets; 2) apply understanding of design mindsets to the iteration process; and 3) publicly present applied understanding of design mindsets.

Big Idea: Designers use feedback from the testing stage to improve prototype solutions, but iteration requires openness to design mindsets. How might we use process reflection as an opportunity to build awareness of design mindsets?
