This ASEE special session is part of a National Science Foundation-sponsored collaborative conference grant to catalyze a scholarly community around research on engineering practice. One of the overarching goals of this grant has been to foster a diverse community of scholar-practitioners engaged and interested in the study of engineering practice, particularly at the early career level (e.g., graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and early-career research scientists and faculty members). A selected panel of early-career scholars will present brief lightning talks introducing themselves and their work. The scholars will then display a poster about a project and their broader research and career interests related to engineering practice, for feedback, ideas, and support from session attendees. Please join us in celebrating the ideas and accomplishments of this next generation of research on engineering practice scholars!
