The Institute for Scholarship on Engineering Education (ISEE) is an intense, interactive, and hands-on approach for impacting engineering education in a scholarly way. Three year-long Institutes, hosted by three different CAEE partner universities, are designed to engage both engineering faculty and graduate students as Institute Scholars. The primary goal of the ISEE is to cultivate a diverse community of engineering education Scholars who can think and work across engineering and education perspectives with the ultimate aim of improving the engineering student learning experience. An additional goal in designing the ISEE was to develop an understanding of the Scholars. While expanding the national community of engineering education researchers is important, Institute Scholars who were new to the field needed a local community of like-minded colleagues with whom they could give and receive feedback on work in progress. Also, engineering faculty participating in the ISEE often had difficulty with particular aspects of educational research.
