Many engineering departments often struggle with meeting “the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context” (Outcome h) that is required by ABET. In this workshop, we present the foundations of product archaeology – the process of reconstructing the lifecycle of a product including the customer requirements, design specifications, and manufacturing processes used to produce it, to understand the decisions that led to its development. The workshop will build upon our efforts in cyber-enabled product dissection-based pedagogy and will provide scalable learning materials, strategies, and educational innovations that develop students’ understanding of the broader context of engineering. Assessment instruments for curricular development will also be presented. Also, participants will create their own learning modules using products and templates provided by the workshop. Laptops are strongly encouraged.
