This table shows the workshop content and its major activities. The first part of the workshop will
be dedicated to presenting a general overview of the Learning Factory Program and the process of
developing an outcomes-based curriculum. It also presents the Learning Factory Program as a strategy
to comply with ABET 2000 Criteria. The second part will be devoted to describing the curriculum,
courses, integrated laboratory facilities and industry advisory board. The third part will address
assessment strategies to evaluate student learning outcomes and program goals.
The workshop presentation strategy will be as follows: After a short presentation, teams of participants
will break out to discuss the topic presented and come up with their ideas on how to adopt or adapt the
specific topic at their institutions. When reconvening, each team will share their ideas with the rest.
Participants will have the opportunity to work on their perception as to what are the stakeholders needs,
develop a strategy to address those needs, and develop an assessment scheme. These exercises will help
them in their institution's developments to address ABET 2000.
