Peer Part Planning
Patrick Mannion, an Instructor at Cal Poly Pomona, teaches students how to best use 3D CAD modeling software in their course. Each assignment requires a large amount of planning and forethought before starting to make a model. To help address this issue, the Peer Part Planning assignment breaks students into small groups and has them come up with a basic plan/outline for how they can approach the creation of the model.
