Description: Engineering education research is a broad-based, rapidly evolving, diverse, interdisciplinary, and international field in which scholars apply the methods of educational research to address a variety of issues pertaining to teaching and learning in engineering. As the field has grown, so has the need for a common terminology and updated taxonomy to map and communicate research initiatives. The process of creating such a taxonomy requires input from a broad community of researchers and other stakeholders from a variety of backgrounds and experience levels. At this workshop, participants will engage in a series of activities to review white papers which summarize prior work on keywords and categorizations of engineering education research, reflect on an initial taxonomy, and offer suggestions to refine the taxonomy. Interested participants at any experience level are encouraged to join this dialogue. This workshop is part of an NSF-funded project, and there is no cost to attend.
Speakers: Cindy Finelli and Maura Borrego
