Jackson, Andrew; Mentzer, Nathan; Kramer-Bottiglio, Rebecca – Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
Background: There is a well-known gender disparity in the engineering field. Three of the most important factors related to the participation of women in engineering are differences in perceived societal relevance, technical self-efficacy, and tinkering self-efficacy. Purpose/Hypothesis: Soft robotics is a relatively new engineering application…

Lönngren, Johanna – Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
Background: Engineering education must prepare students to assume professional and ethical responsibility for the societal impacts of technology, but most engineering students do not receive adequate ethics teaching. In fact, engineering education has been described as characterized by a "culture of disengagement" in which ethical and…

Millunchick, Joanna Mirecki; Brennan-Wydra, Emma; Henderson, Trevion; Johnson, Aaron; Finelli, Cynthia J. – Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
Background: Demographic characteristics are known to influence participation in cocurricular activities. Less studied are the effects of other background characteristics. Purpose: We hypothesize that considering college knowledge and students' proactive behaviors in tandem with demographics provides better models for predicting such participation.…

Schiff, Daniel S.; Logevall, Emma; Borenstein, Jason; Newstetter, Wendy; Potts, Colin; Zegura, Ellen – Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
Background: Developing social responsibility attitudes in future engineers and computer scientists is of critical and rising importance. Yet research shows that prosocial attitudes decline during undergraduate engineering education. Purpose: Influenced by the Professional Social Responsibility Development Model (PSRDM), this study explores the…

Lyon, Joseph A.; Magana, Alejandra J. – Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
Background: Computation and computational thinking are of great interest to both engineering research and teaching communities. Effective learning environments are needed to incorporate computational thinking within the engineering disciplines. Design-based research is uniquely positioned to address this need for designing effective learning…

Foley, Rider W.; Ferguson, Sean M.; Pollack, Catherine C. – Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
Background: Accreditation organizations broadened program assessment criteria in ways that present challenges for the evaluation of learning outcomes. This is especially the case in courses where there are not narrowly defined questions or definitive solutions, such as engineering ethics. While protocols for learning assessment exist, there is…

Ross, Monique S.; Huff, James L.; Godwin, Allison – Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
Background: Social identity theory has been used to understand student and professional engagement in engineering. Engineering identity development, however, can be disrupted by the barriers and challenges associated with the racialized and gendered perceptions of engineering. Purpose/Hypothesis: This study examined the engineering identity…

Secules, Stephen; McCall, Cassandra; Mejia, Joel Alejandro; Beebe, Chanel; Masters, Adam S.; Sánchez-Peña, Matilde L.; Svyantek, Martina – Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
Background: Many engineering education researchers acknowledge that their positionality impacts their research. Practices for reporting positionality vary widely and rarely incorporate a nuanced discussion of the impact of demographic identities on research. Researchers holding marginalized or relatively hidden identities must navigate additional…

Berdanier, Catherine G. P. – Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
Background: At the graduate level, academic writing competencies are essential for graduation and careers as researchers. Little research has been done to understand how engineering writers' attitudes toward writing correspond to enacted textual patterns. Purpose/Hypothesis: The purpose of this study is to investigate current and prospective…

Berger, Edward J.; Wu, Chuhao; Briody, Elizabeth K.; Wirtz, Elizabeth; Rodríguez-Mejía, Fredy – Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
Background: Prior efforts to understand faculty culture have largely described monoliths where individuals are differentiated by their productivity. Little prior work provides rich faculty subcultural descriptions and their connections to specific activities, including disposition to change. Purpose/Hypothesis: This article describes the goals,…

Watkins, Jessica; Portsmore, Merredith; Swanson, Rebecca D. – Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
Background: Elementary educators are increasingly asked to teach engineering design, motivating study of how they learn to teach this discipline. In particular, there is a need to examine how teachers reason about pedagogical situations and dilemmas in engineering--how they draw on their disciplinary understandings, attention to students'…

Goller, Michael; Harteis, Christian; Gijbels, David; Donche, Vincent – Journal of Engineering Education, 2020
Background: Internships are highly relevant learning experiences for engineering students. However, such practice-based learning settings must be carefully designed to allow their learning potential to unfold. Purpose: Exploring the job demands-control-support (JDCS) model, this study aimed to investigate how job demands, job control, and social…

Quan, Gina M.; Gupta, Ayush – Journal of Engineering Education, 2020
Background: Tinkering, an ad hoc approach to solving a problem, involves manipulating objects to characterize and build knowledge about a particular system in an exploratory way, often with the goal of getting some product/idea to produce desired behavior. Tinkering contrasts more deliberate activity toward understanding how a phenomenon works.…

Morgan, Demetri L.; Davis, Kendrick B.; López, Norma – Journal of Engineering Education, 2020
Background: Engineering can play a significant role in the public good. Changing political dynamics and a surge in activism among the broader science community have only heightened this reality. Yet little published research exists about how engineering students develop both their technical and political identities to affect the broader society.…

Mazzurco, Andrea; Daniel, Scott – Journal of Engineering Education, 2020
Background: Humanitarian engineering (HE) is rapidly emerging in universities and professional workplaces worldwide. In HE, socio-technical thinking is fundamental as HE projects exist at the intersection of engineering and sustainable community development. However, the literature still lacks an understanding of the key features of…
