Abstract In academic mentoring research, there is a need to include empirical designs that considers more sociocultural perspectives. The purpose of this exploratory study was to race re-imagine academic mentoring by considering its sociocultural perspectives (i.e., intersectionality, tokenism, and awareness). For this, a qualitative-dominant mixed-methods approach was used to explore the perspectives and responses of twelve womxn graduate students and faculty involved in science and engineering...

Over the past ten years, research into students' emotions in educational environments has increased. Although researchers have called for more studies that rely on objective measures of emotional experience, limitations on utilizing multi-modal data sources exist. Studies of emotion and emotional regulation in classrooms traditionally rely on survey instruments, experience-sampling, artifacts, interviews, or observational procedures. These methods, while valuable, are mainly dependent on partici...

The relationship between graduate students and their research advisors within academia is pivotal to the development and success of the research enterprise. Graduate students rely on their faculty advisor to be a source of information, a departmental negotiator, and a role model to guide their professional and ethical behavior. However, if an advisor does not fully recognize a student’s best interest or they are unaware of how to be an “ethical mentor”, they may overlook the unique social capita...
Little is known about the impact self-efficacy and topic emotions have on novice engineering students when first exposed toan engineering design course. Freshman students may have difficulties regulating their emotions when exposed to new orcomplex topics such as engineering design. Consequently, they may become frustrated or discouraged as the semesterprogresses that can lead to feelings of hopelessness and anxiety. In contrast, novice students may experience feelings ofhope and interest that m...

Proficient leadership skills are increasingly crucial for engineers as they are expected to work in multi-disciplinary and multicultural teams across the world. However, perspectives of engineering leadership are ill-defined and may vary depending on the region, school or country of residence or work. While both industry and academia concur that leadership skills are crucial to engineering graduates, there is considerable controversy over the definition of ‘global engineering leadership’. This l...

There is a growing interest by engineering education researchers to identify learning spaces that enhance student engagement and learning in higher education [1]-[3]. Yet seldom does the creation and design of these learning environments consider students’ initial perceptions of these spaces. This exploratory study sought to understand what early engineering students perceive are their ideal learning environments. A rearrangeable, active, and mobile learning classroom space, containing 14 tables...

Literacies are central to the social and cultural practices that are intertwined with identities, who gets to participate in engineering, and the knowledge that is valued in the discipline. However, identifying these literacies is not a straightforward process for engineering faculty. The purpose of this workshop is to help engineering faculty identify equity-oriented literacies that challenge hidden curriculum frameworks in engineering and influence engineering identity formation.

Makerspaces are a growing trend in engineering and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education at both the university and K-12 levels. These spaces which, in theory, are characterized by a community of likeminded individuals interested in digital fabrication and innovative design, are argued to provide opportunities to foster the skills sets critical to the next generation of engineers and scientists. However, spaces for making are not new to the engineering curriculum as many eng...
The purpose of this exploratory special issue study was to understand the hidden curriculum (HC), or the unwritten, unofficial, or unintended lessons, around the professionalization of engineering faculty across institutions of higher education. Additionally, how engineering faculty connected the role of HC awareness, emotions, self-efficacy, and self-advocacy concepts was studied. A mixed-method survey was disseminated to 55 engineering faculties across 54 institutions of higher education in th...
