Abstract

A program called mechanism of the week was created for use within a third-year mechanical engineering course, machine dynamics, to improve the student engagement and interest in the course content as well as to help aid student understanding of the course concepts. This program was implemented across three semesters, including some virtual sessions, and evaluated using a student feedback survey. The results of this survey indicated strong student support of the program. In addition to this particular application, the general principles of this program could be applied to other courses and disciplines to gain the same overall benefit.
