In today's society, educational opportunities have evolved beyond the traditional classroom setting. Most universities have implemented virtual learning environments in an effort to provide more opportunities for potential or current students seeking alternative and more affordable learning solutions. "User-Centered...

Engineering Self-Efficacy, Interactions with Faculty, and Other Forms of Capital for Underrepresented Engineering Students.

Ieee, Dika SL, Pando MA, Tempest BQ, Foxx KA, Allen ME.
UIID-AD: 3849

To address the chronic issues of underrepresentation in engineering education, a small but growing body of research has examined social and cultural explanations for engineering persistence among women, racial/ethnic minorities, first-generation college students, and other underrepresented groups. In this...

Insights from a First-Year Learning Community to Achieve Gender Balance.

Ieee, Oakes W, Hsu MC, Zoltowski C.
UIID-AD: 3906

Engineering remains challenged with regard to underrepresentation by gender and ethnicity. Lack of gender parity in engineering has been a problem since the very start of engineering but conversations about and efforts to address the lack of women in...
