The inquiry guiding this study was to document student perceptions of an increase in digital fluency after participation in a Living Learning Community based MLC. Pre and post-experience surveys and a year-end focus group meeting will provide the data. Preliminary results from surveys conducted in fall 2016 suggest that use of mobile learning strategies and devices were effective means of improving student communication and digital fluency. Further data will be collected at the end of spring 2017. Recommendations based on the results were made which may be useful for mobile device based teaching and learning.
Faculty from construction management Kirsten Davis and R. Casey Cline also presented at the conference. The title of their presentation was “Using Competency Grading in a Statics and Mechanics of Materials Course.”
