Student-centered learning is known to lead to greater student knowledge gains and conceptual understanding. In practice,implementation of these approaches can vary from the ideal implementation as defined by the original developer, leadingto differences in student outcomes compared to what might be expected. Fidelity of implementation, i.e., the extent towhich key practices of a pedagogical approach are used, must be considered in understanding how student-centeredpedagogies impact students. In ...

Recent disasters, including the Flint water crisis, the Volkswagen emissions scandal, and the post-hurricane scandal in Puerto Rico, reflect a moral failure to respond to the social dimensions of engineering. We employ three jumping-off points: ideological foundations in the culture of engineering education, dominant imaginaries of "community-engaged" research and practice, and the instruction of engineering ethics. We share the belief that these deficiencies are interconnected and mutually rein...

Socially constructed identities and language practices influence the ways students perceive themselves as learners, problem solvers, and future professionals. While research has been conducted on individuals' identity as engineers, less has been written about how the language used during engineering problem solving influences students' perceptions and their construction of identities as learners and future engineers. This study investigated engineering students' identities as reflected in their ...

Many qualitative research studies in engineering education use semi-structured interviews as an approach to inquiry. However, traditional semi-structured interviews do not always enable participants to answer questions in deep and meaningful ways. Recent research in engineering education has successfully drawn upon the inquiry method of photo elicitation, which uses photographs as interview prompts to elicit “thick description” from participants. Some studies have extended the methodology of pho...

The engineering community values the development of critical thinking, but the techniques for most efficiently achieving this outcome are still up for debate. The literature suggests that research experiences provide a strong opportunity for students to develop cognitive abilities, but much of the research is based on the self-reported perceptions of the student participants and often lacks evidence of validity. This paper examines the perceptions and use of engaged thinking, a term that encompa...

Work place engineering problems are recognized as being complex and ambiguous. However, most of the problems students are asked to solve during their degree programs are classroom problems. Most studies of ambiguity in problem solving have defined ambiguity as a characteristic of the problems. We are interested in understanding how students interpret engineering problems, either creating or resolving ambiguity during their problem solving process. The research question that guides this study is:...

Durability of FRP composites and their bond to concrete is essential to structural integrity of an FRP repair. Epoxy adhesives are used to form FRP composites, and as a bonding medium between the FRP and concrete substrate. Susceptibility of epoxy to the negative effects of water and high temperature affects the longevity of FRP repairs in hygrothermal environmental conditions. The presented work investigates the effects of such environments on the curing kinetics of epoxy. Competing effects of ...

Engineering has had a continual concern with diversity due to the low numbers of minority and female majors. Although race is recognized as socially constructed, the rhetoric around race in engineering for the most part takes it as an immutable characteristic of certain individuals (Black, Hispanic, Native American, etc.). Further, the approach to improving diversity takes on a Colonial perspective, with programs to help these students better “assimilate” into college life and to “fix” their per...
