Brubaker, Eric Reynolds; Trego, Marsie; Cohen, Shoshanah; Taha, Kofi – Advances in Engineering Education, 2022
Campus-community partnerships are integral to community-engaged learning, service-learning and similar pedagogies that extend project-based learning beyond the classroom into "real world" communities. Community-engaged courses have increased in prevalence in engineering education. Evidence suggests that they are effective at connecting…

Serna, Jaime Moreno; Chaparro, Teresa Sánchez; Purcell, Wendy Maria; Aldeanueva, Carlos Mataix – Advances in Engineering Education, 2022
Higher education institutions (HEIs) are increasingly engaged in the urgent and important work involved in the global transition towards sustainable development. They are potentially well suited to address key challenges, being as they are knowledge and talent 'factories'. Beyond their educational mission, HEIs are particularly well placed to…

MacCarty, Nordica; Walkin, Julie – Advances in Engineering Education, 2022
Many of today's engineering students are seeking international, intercultural, and interdisciplinary educational opportunities that involve acquiring real-world project experiences while working toward making a difference in communities. Even as university teaching and learning is tied to terms and learning modules and therefore has certain…

DeBoer, Jennifer; Radhakrishnan, Dhinesh; Freitas, Claudio – Advances in Engineering Education, 2022
Displaced learners, uprooted because of conflict, poverty, or other major traumas, are often shut out of opportunities to learn engineering. At the same time, fragile contexts demand engineers' expertise, but experts and their engineered solutions are often called in from outside the community. In this article, we examine engineering learning as a…

Reynolds, Nora Pillard; MacCarty, Nordica A.; Sharp, Kendra V.; Hartman, Eric – Advances in Engineering Education, 2022
As global engineering education projects and programs are initiated, too often social outcomes and long-term impacts are assumed to be positive. This is particularly true for sustainable development projects, which often have an inherent assumption of positive transformation through engineering solutions. We argue that a focus on technical…

Morelock, John R.; Salado, Alejandro; Lakeh, Arash Baghaei; Richards, Trevor K. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2021
In undergraduate engineering education, students are often overexposed to problem-solving methods that are unrepresentative of how engineers solve problems in practice. For decision-making problems, in particular, students are commonly taught to compare alternative solutions using known and provided information. However, many real-world…

Sochacka, Nicola W.; Delaine, David A.; Shepard, Thomas G.; Walther, Joachim – Advances in Engineering Education, 2021
Prior research indicates that empathy can help engineers achieve better outcomes in team-based, design, entrepreneurial, and humanitarian environments. We describe an educational innovation designed to teach engineering students empathic communication skills. Written in the spirit of a propagation (versus dissemination) paradigm, we focus on how…

Bampasidis, Georgios; Piperidis, Dimitris; Papakonstantinou, Vassilis C.; Stathopoulos, Dimitris; Troumpetari, Christina; Poutos, Petros – Advances in Engineering Education, 2021
This paper presents the project Hydrobots, which the Eugenides Foundation has run in Greek secondary education schools since 2012. It is based on the MIT's Sea Perch project and more than 300 student teams got involved and built successfully an underwater remotely operated vehicle. The formal Greek education system lacks large-scale STEM-related…

Coblentz, Dori; Realff, Mary Lynn; Alemdar, Meltem – Advances in Engineering Education, 2021
The Effective Team Dynamics (ETD) Initiative at Georgia Tech developed curriculum to improve function of student teams. ETD uses the language of CliftonStrengths® to help students identify the areas in which they are the strongest and to apply those strengths to interpersonal contexts. ETD has developed curriculum for five "Touchpoints,"…

Copp, David A.; Isaacs, Jason T.; Hespanha, João P. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2021
Recent changes have been made in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education in the United States with the goal of increasing the number of students pursuing degrees and careers in STEM. The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) integrate new science and engineering standards in an attempt to achieve this goal and are the…

This study, framed with a socialization lens, discusses the impact of using stories about early contributors in engineering education (via results of the Engineering Education Pioneers Project) as a mechanism to help socialize the first cohort of graduate students in a new engineering education Ph.D. program. Two instructors designed a new course…

Long, Leroy L., III – Advances in Engineering Education, 2021
Engineering education classrooms are transforming into spaces focused on advancing critical and ethical skills in addition to technical skills (Ceylan & Lee, 2003; Gunnink & Bernhardt, 2002; Siller, 2001). Yet, as countless Black people continue to be murdered by White police officers and vigilante citizens, many engineering classrooms…

Mollica, Molly Y.; Kajfez, Rachel Louis; Riter, Elizabeth – Advances in Engineering Education, 2021
Community engaged learning has demonstrated educational benefits and is an especially promising method to engage a diverse group of students in engineering. In this work, we present toy adaptation for children with disabilities as a novel community engaged learning tool. According to students surveyed, this process is enjoyable, demonstrates the…
