Wagner, John E.; Parrish, William R.; Bullard, Lisa G. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
Most chemical engineering (ChE) students know very little about professional licensure and the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam. Many of those who know think that licensure is something civil engineers have to get but nothing they (as chemical engineers) have to bother with. In fact, licensure is something all ChE students should be thinking…

Roman, Tiffany A.; Racek, Jon – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2019
Three-dimensional (3-D) virtual environments have key affordances that can improve learning, particularly when context, culture, and pedagogical aims are aligned to a given learning situation. One challenge in detailing effective uses of 3-D virtual environments in teaching and learning contexts is that the design judgments involved are not always…
