This poster presentation is an evidence-based project regarding laboratory learning and instruction for first-year students. In healthcare education, it is common for students to participate in a structured environment designed to provide instruction and gain valuable practical experience related to physical and mental patient care. Commonly referred to as a ‘Clinic’, it is typically a classroom/laboratory whereby students gain knowledge and skills through practice, and is designed to immerse students in problem solving scenarios that increases confidence, familiarity, collaboration, and competency. This project describes a learning setting for Freshmen engineering students in a clinic-like environment to reinforce basic engineering concepts and fundamentals, that complements a lecture-based course in the engineering curriculum. This poster will show several of the modules students completed, and share some preliminary learning results through their experience in the Engineering Clinic.
