Workshop: Engineering Education Workshop

Are you interested in expanding your knowledge and skills in conducting high-quality engineering education research? If so, EXPLORING HOW PEOPLE LEARN ENGINEERING, sponsored by the National Science Foundation, is a workshop that may be for you.

The workshop, intended for those with prior experience in engineering education research, will be held in Golden, Colorado USA on August 1-3, 2011. At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

1) describe relevant psychological models of student learning
2) apply these models to learning engineering
3) develop a substantive engineering education research question
4) develop a theory-based research plan to answer the research question.

All costs during the workshop (hotel, food, workshop materials) will be paid by the project. Participants must pay for their own travel expenses to and from Golden, Colorado.

The EHPLE workshop is part of a larger NSF-funded project entitled “Expanding and Substaining Research Capacity in Engineering and Technology Education: Building on Successful Programs for Faculty and Graduate Students,” with Ruth Streveler from Purdue as PI.
