Research on engineering education reform highlights the importance of understanding
barriers to change and the impacts of the environmental, historical, and systemic constraints on reform efforts (Besterfield-Sacre, Cox, Borrego, Beddoes, & Zhu, 2014). In addition, research on educational change emphasizes that effective strategies for reform requires alignment with the beliefs of the individuals involved or must seek to change those beliefs (Henderson, Beach, &
Finkelstein, 2011). With that in mind, there exists a need to learn from individuals who would benefit from and/or engage with fu ... (continued)
