A review of the literature relevant to engineering identity.

Borrego M, Patrick AD.
UIID-AD: 4261

The aim of this review is to summarize the use of identity in theory and practice in the existing literature and make suggestions for areas of future work in engineering education. Identity is complex, multi-faceted and changes over time....

Academic coaching tools for increased retention: Empowering engineering students in their education.

Groh JL.
UIID-AD: 4196
2016; doi: 10.1109/FIE.2016.7757343.

What skills can we use to help undergraduate and graduate engineering students to set and work toward their own goals, to take charge of their education and career path, and to hold themselves accountable all without adding more to...

Assessing gender differences between student motivations for studying engineering.

Ronan AD, Bringardner J.
UIID-AD: 4282

This research paper investigates what motivates students to major in engineering, and how the motives differ between men and women. It aims to address curriculum planning in first-year engineering programs to improve retention and diversity. Previous research has identified...

Broadening participation in visualization.

Byrd VL.
UIID-AD: 4125
2016; doi: 10.1109/RESPECT.2016.7836177.

The REU Site: Research Experience for Undergraduates in Collaborative Data Visualization Applications (VisREU) is a multi-year, interdisciplinary program that provides research experiences for undergraduates with an interest in visualization. The unique feature of the VisREU site is the paring...

Computer Science Principles (CSP) and students with learning differences: Expanding opportunities for a hidden underrepresented group.

Wille S, Century J, Pike M.
UIID-AD: 4328
2016; doi: 10.1109/RESPECT.2016.7836160.

The computer science (CS) education field is engaging in unprecedented efforts to expand opportunities in K-12 CS education, and to broaden participation of students traditionally underrepresented in CS. However, even as the field considers ways to provide access to...

Developing a comprehensive online transfer engineering curriculum: Designing an online introduction to engineering course.

Huang T, Langhoff NP, Schiorring E, Dunmire EN, Rebold T.
UIID-AD: 4226

Access to lower-division engineering courses in the community college substantially influences whether or not community college students pursue and successfully achieve an engineering degree. With about 60% of students from under-represented minority (URM) groups beginning their post-secondary education in...

Effects of a one-week research program on the graduate school pipeline and graduate student professional development.

Miller S, Dunn V, Swartz S, Antoine ALC.
UIID-AD: 4163

During a one-week school break in 2015 at the University of Colorado Boulder, 20 undergraduate students, paired with 20 graduate student mentors, conducted engineering research. The goal of this program was to increase retention of undergraduates in engineering as...

Engineer of 2020 attributes and the black male future engineer: A review of literature.

Tolbert D, Cardella ME.
UIID-AD: 4311

Historically, the United States of America has been an innovative and technically proficient forerunner. This position is threatened as the country's ability to develop competitive quantities of engineers, equipped to tackle the complex challenges of the future, has come...

Enhancing continuity between gender diversity interventions using hybrid social networks.

Griffith H, Griffith A, Hajiaghajani F.
UIID-AD: 4193
2016; doi: 10.1109/FIE.2016.7757721.

Increasing gender diversity within the engineering workforce is crucial for ensuring competitive advantage in the global marketplace. Although non-systemic gender diversity interventions in engineering education report positive outcomes throughout the literature, the cumulative effect of such efforts has proven...

Ethnic student organizations in engineering: Implications for practice from two studies.

Martin JP, Stefl SK, Revelo RA, Adams SG, Garrett SD.
UIID-AD: 4242

In this paper, we present results and implications from two studies focusing on the participation of African American and Latina/o students in ethnic student organizations. Conducted independently by two research teams, the two studies provide striking similarities in their...

From school classes to UNESCO: IYL-enabled environments for tackling the STEM skills shortage through student-led outreach.

Posner MT, John PV, Wong NHL, Mittal V, Nunez-Velazquez MM.
UIID-AD: 4267
2016; doi: 10.1117/12.2238222.

The accepted industrial skills shortage in the subjects of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in the United Kingdom has led to an increasing drive for universities to work with a wider pool of potential students. One contributor to...

Increasing gender diversity amongst intending engineering majors using social networks: A work in progress.

Griffith H, Griffith A.
UIID-AD: 4192
2016;203-206. doi: 10.1109/ISECon.2016.7457533.

Interventions aimed at increasing gender diversity within the engineering workforce have proven insufficient in aggregate to yield transformative outcomes on a national scale. This is in contrast with results disseminated from numerous discrete intervention efforts implemented across the K-16...
