At U-M and around the country, research in Engineering Education is developing in exciting directions. In this evolving field, scholars apply the methods of educational research to address a range of issues pertaining to teaching and learning in engineering. The findings can help instructors in any field think about effective teaching strategies, both in and beyond the classroom.
Interested in learning more? You're invited to attend CRLT-Engin's Engineering Education Research Day on March 20. This day-long program on North Campus will provide opportunities for U-M faculty, staff, and students to learn about the scholarship of teaching and learning in engineering as well as explore possible collaborations.
Three major sessions are scheduled:
Introduction to Engineering Education Research and information about the Rackham Certificate in Engineering Education Research (9-10:30)
Poster Fair: Research and Scholarship in Engineering Education (11:30-1:00)
Research talk: Maura Borrego (Virginia Tech and NSF) presents, "What Influences Undergraduate Decisions to Attend Engineering Graduate School?" (1:30-3:00)
