Walker, Erica; DesJardins, John; Przestrzelski, Bre – Advances in Engineering Education, 2020
Historically, classroom content delivery has relied on lecture, but recently there has been a call for educators to use active learning to promote student engagement and a deeper understanding of the material (Bonwell and Eison 1991; Erickson 1984; Cross 1987; Prince 2004; Bodnar and Clark 2014). According to Prince (2004) active learning is any…

Zapata-Ramos, Mari Luz; Lugo, José E. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2020
Students are attracted to innovation and entrepreneurship. However, it is challenging for them to take courses in I&E due to their already busy curriculums. This paper describes the "New Venture Design Experience," a one-year interdisciplinary program that pairs core and elective courses between the colleges of Engineering and…

Earle, Andrew G.; Merenda, Michael J.; Short, Kevin M.; Thein, May-Win L.; Sedam, Marc C. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2020
Benefits of interdisciplinary student participation in a university's entrepreneurial activities are well known. Still, institutional barriers (structural, temporal, spatial, economic, attitudinal) conspire to block participation. Aided by the NSF's "Pathways to Innovation Program," the authors conducted a field experiment to increase…

Simmons, Denise R.; Lord, Susan M. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2019
Supporting diverse students in engineering education is considered a critical unsolved issue facing engineering education. The field continues to suffer from a lack of diversity and struggles to recruit and retain underrepresented students. We argue that structural barriers prevent equitable participation. In this paper, we examine structural…

Finelli, Cynthia J.; Froyd, Jeffrey E. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2019
In this paper, we report and expand on research questions designed to improve undergraduate engineering education. These questions are based on a yearlong process that included a three-step Delphi study and a subsequent two-day workshop. The Delphi study, conducted during winter and spring of 2015, engaged subject matter experts from engineering…

Martin, Lee; Dixon, Colin – Advances in Engineering Education, 2019
There is growing interest in the engineering education community in "making" and the Maker Movement as a context for young people to learn and develop interest around design and early engineering competencies. Although some researchers argue that making has the potential to serve a liberating and anti-oppressive function in education,…

Ogilvie, Andrea M.; Knight, David B. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2019
To make the transfer student pathway viable to meet workforce needs, it is essential to think beyond simply linking two institutions and getting students in the door--students need to be supported throughout the adjustment period. In this article, we address the "support" aspect of the problem by reporting findings from 306 engineering…
