Gomez, Jamie; Svihla, Vanessa – Chemical Engineering Education, 2018
We developed and tested a pedagogical strategy--asset-based design challenges--to enhance diversity in early chemical engineering coursework. Using qualitative methods, we found first-year students justified high-cost solutions with ethical arguments; teams that included rural expertise argued instead for economically-viable solutions. In the…

Goodwin, Allison; Verdín, Dina; Kirn, Adam; Satterfield, Derrick – Chemical Engineering Education, 2018
We surveyed 342 first-year engineering students at four U.S. institutions interested in a chemical engineering career about their feelings of belonging in engineering, motivation, and STEM identities. We compared these students by both gender and race/ethnicity on these attitudinal factors. We found several significant differences in…

Farrell, Stephanie; Minerick, Adrienne R. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2018
Many educators hold fairness and egalitarianism as core values that they strive to uphold in their professional work and personal lives, and they hope that they evaluate and support students based strictly on student potential and achievement. However, everyone holds unconscious beliefs about social and identity groups. This implicit (unconscious)…

Gautum, Satyen; Jangam, Sachin; Loh, Kai Chee – Chemical Engineering Education, 2018
Developing responsible learners is one of the key education challenges of our time. Education literature suggests that for students to see themselves as active and necessary participants in their own learning, it is important that they view themselves as stakeholders in education. This research aims at exploring the effectiveness of instructional…
