A grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) has given us the opportunity to enhance CEE262 with research-based pedagogical techniques, and disseminate the course for STEM and non-STEM students at other colleges/universities. This is a collaborative project between Princeton University, University of Massachusetts Amherst (PI – Dr. Sanjay Arwade), and Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (PI – Dr. Cris Moen). This NSF project began September 1, 2014. A website under development, http://casce.princeton.edu, has all the information and tools necessary for teaching this course. A workshop to this effect was held in Princeton in June 2015, 2017, and in June 2016 in UMass.
