At U-M and around the country, research in Engineering Education has been developing in exciting directions. In this growing field, scholars apply the methods of educational research to address a range of issues pertaining to teaching and learning in engineering.
The findings of these scholars can help instructors in any field think about effective approaches to teaching, both in and beyond the classroom. Wondering about the latest research on any of the following?
how to effectively employ innovative teaching strategies and methods to improve student learning
utilizing educational technology in the classroom
increasing the number of underrepresented students in your field
overcoming student resistance to active learning
enhancing learning in design courses
You'll find insights about all of these in the projects presented by U-M faculty, students, and staff at the 9th annual Engineering Education Research Fair, sponsored by CRLT in Engineering. The poster fair will take place Thursday, March 12, 12:00pm - 1:30pm, in the Johnson Rooms of the Lurie Engineering Center and feature projects by researchers in fields including engineering, education, technical communication, physics, and chemistry. All are invited to join us for lunch and engage with the U-M community of scholars who are promoting excellence in engineering education.
