Electrical Engineering Education

Our group focuses on electrical engineering education and interdisciplinary education that combines physics with electronics, such as electro-optics and microelectronics education.

Recent Studies

  • Improving intrinsic motivation and systems thinking skills among sophomore students
  • Interdisciplinary program on avionics: Improving high-school students’ attitudes toward physics and engineering
  • Long-term effect of animation-based learning on academic achievements: The case of electronic devices
  • High-school program in electro-optics: Development of systems thinking skills 

  • High-school course on engineering design: Enhancement of motivation toward science and engineering and development of systems thinking skills
  • Students’ motivation and academic achievement: The case of an engineering preparatory program
  • Analysis of motivation in pre-service and in-service electronics teachers
