Over the past decade there has been much interest in the higher education community to refine engineering curricula and teaching approaches in order to implement new reforms. Although student learning is not completely understood, a general view remains that teaching methods can contribute to student learning success. Results from standardized tests, administered by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES), raise questions for augmenting pedagogical approaches used by engineering and engineering technology faculty toward improving student performance. This paper reports modern approaches in pedagogy and compares them with current methods used by engineering faculty. We demonstrate the utility of web-based instructional tools which facilitate a hybrid learning model aimed at enhancing student learning and performance in surveying engineering and geomatics.
