Discover Engineering Education
An increasing number of engineers, prepared to meet the challenges of ever-fluctuating changes in technology, are required worldwide. This program is rising to meet the challenge by training the future leaders responsible for designing engineering course pedagogy, curriculum, and leveraged research to improve learning outcomes. Our research-active faculty members are adept at teaching and developing in our graduate students the skills and expertise identified in our mission statement.
- Undergraduate Researcher to present locally and nationally!
- Christopher Green, an undergraduate research assistant of Dr. Goodridge within the Engineering Education Department, has recently had some of his research work accepted for presentation at the Utah Conference for Undergraduate Research (UCUR) in Provo, National Conferences on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) in Kentucky, and Utah’s Research Posters on the Hill (RPOH) in Salt Lake City. These forums allows students to showcase research they are involved in at the undergraduate level to the state and nation. Christopher will be presenting research into potential misconceptions discovered in a gateway engineering course “statics” discovered through discourse analysis of learning log data collected from students. His research will indicate common misconceptions exhibited by and will allow for a more dynamic address of those misconceptions through interventions by the instructor. The research will point the way to an improved understanding of what students struggle with in statics. Congratulations Christopher!
- REU Site Program
- This ten-week summer program provides undergraduate students in a science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) discipline with intensive experience in engineering education research, such as how learners’ experience, background, and perception play a role when they learn engineering knowledge and skills. The program provides research experience for undergraduates (REU) and is not an internship. The program is sponsored by the National Science Foundation and hosted by Utah State University (USU) in Logan, Utah, a beautiful city nestled between two mountain ranges.
