Abstract

The goal of this special interactive session is to engage attendees in (1) knitting the results of two linked studies (of engineering undergraduates and engineering faculty) into the larger body of engineering education scholarship and (2) developing ways of thinking about these findings that can be used to inform engineering education program planning and classroom practice. The findings are from an extensive set of data collected over multiple years by the Academic Pathways Study (APS) and Studies of Engineering Educator Decisions (SEED), both of which are part of the NSF-funded Center for the Advancement of Engineering Education (CAEE). These data sets present a unique opportunity to examine the intersections between research on engineering learning from the student perspective and research on engineering teaching from the faculty perspective.
