(2008) Turning Students On to Circuits

Today’s students

Today’s  students  differ  from  those  of  older  generations in several respects [2]:

1. They have not tinkered. Thus, if they get started in  EE  through  the  conventional  circuit analysis class, they have no idea where, in practice, all the theory  fits  and  why  it  is  needed.  In  the  past, many  students  had  tinkered  and  could  see  why the  theory  they  were  being taught  was  useful. This provided motivation, which is missing today.

2. They are impatient. Today’s students are used to immediate  gratification  (exemplified  by  their obsessive  playing  of  computer  games,  where they push a button and see “major results” right away). Telling these students that they “will see later  in  the  curriculum”  why  circuit  analysis  is useful, does not work; two semesters down the road, or even one, is too far into the future for them.  Thus  they  lose  motivation,  develop  frustration and many become passive learners.

3. They  think  that  software  is  everything. Being members  of  the  computer  games generation, today’s  students  relate  to  the  computer  screen extremely well. This is good, but also has a negative side: Students tend to develop the impression that all that needs to be done is press keys, and  somebody  else,  somewhere,  will  take  care of designing and building the hardware.

In view of the above generational differences, it does  not  make  sense  to  keep  teaching  students using techniques that were appropriate half a century  ago.  Doing  so  risks  losing  some  of  the  best minds, or at least turning them off as far as circuits are concerned.
