Strategies for teaching computer-aided design should be based on developing assignments that can appeal to a variety of students. Some students can and want to learn faster than others. To create an environment that can satisfy both types of students, two teaching methods were developed that work well: 1) Concepts are integrated into a building block approach that allows students to begin with blocks of simple information, adding more blocks as they reach a more complicated level of understanding; and 2) Assignments are organized within a flexible structure, so that students can co-create assignments that reflect their own interests and skill-levels.
