Engineering talent development portfolio: an innovative framework to design lifelong engineering Llearning

The imperatives of innovation and globalization require holistic approaches to developing advanced engineering capability. Over the past decade or more there has been growing concern in the developed economies about these issues [1] and national strategies [2] to tackle them and numerous reports on reform in engineering education [3-5]. More recently concern over a shortage of engineers in developed economies have emerged [6]. This is combined with a recognition that the problem begins very early in the education system [7-8]. The reality is that all of these are parts of a much more complex system of initiatives that together may help revitalize and advance the engineering capability in the industrial economies. There are many cutting edge programs in schools and informal education, innovation in engineering education in university and creative continuing professional development initiatives in industry that are each addressing parts of the overall problem. What is missing is a coherent framework for analysi…

Is the engineering education community becoming more interdisciplinary?

Is the Engineering Education Community Becoming More Interdisciplinary? The transformative potential of technology-enabled communication argues for creating and extending interdisciplinary collaboration among researchers in Engineering Education Research (EER). However, there is a need to establish a theoretical framework to understand and support the emergence and sustainability of virtual research collaboration, informally between networks of colleagues and formally within established teams and organizations in EER. A conceptual framework is presented addressing virtual collaboration effectiveness for interdisciplinarity of EER.Building on prior theoretical and methodological insights from social studies of science and bibliometrics, we address the following research questions: What quantity and types of engineering education research are currently being done across disciplines (fields)? If significant local variations are detected, how do we account for them? What collaborative trends are nowevident in eng…

Knowledge-enabled engineering design: toward an integrated model

Knowledge-Driven Engineering Design: Toward an Integrated Model Librarians and engineering faculty have long understood that design is one of the core processes that defines and ties the profession together. In an increasingly knowledge-driven society, students need to efficiently integrate information into their design process so that they can constructively and productively contribute professionally. Engineering curricula are embracing design activities, even as early as the first year, but a question remains as to how well information literacy is being integrated into these new activities. For example, the Engineering Change study found there has been very little improvement to lifelong learning skills in engineering graduates over the last decade, and indeed lifelong learning, one indicator of information literacy skills, was the lowest rated of the ABET student learning outcomes.1 Both librarians and engineering educators have studied the use of information in an engineering context, but the overlap of t…

A keyword based scheme to define engineering education research as a field and its members

In the last three decades, engineering education research (EER) has made remarkable progress towards a field of interdisciplinary scholarship. This paper defines EER by developing a keyword-based scheme for exploring EER-related scientific publications and collaboration. The keyword-based scheme refers to a conceptual framework we have developed for generating a parsimonious list of keywords which are salient in EER. The generated keywords were used to collect bibliographic records from ISI Web of Science® (WoS), a citation index providing access to the world's leading citation databases and journals. To perform a comprehensive search for EER-related literature by employing the range of truncation rules and the advanced search options available in WoS, the project makes following contributions to the current knowledge base on interdisciplinary research in EE: (1) engineering education research is operationalized as a sophisticated and systematically derived set of keywords and (2) the method of the current st…

Designing for global data sharing, designing for educational transformation

This paper provides an example of a global data sharing project with an educational transformation agenda. This agenda shaped both the design of the shared dataset and the experience of sharing the common dataset to support multiple perspective inquiry and enable integrative and critically reflexive research-to-practice dialogue. The shared dataset contains multiple disciplinary instances of design review conversations – digital videos of conversations between those who give and those who receive feedback, guidance, critique, or mentoring during a design review event. International design researchers were invited to apply their expertise to the dataset and participate face-to-face in a multi-day symposium for catalyzing conversations connecting design thinking, teaching, and learning. In this paper we describe this data sharing project, highlighting (1) the principles that guided the design of the shared dataset, (2) challenges encountered with implementing the project, and (3) the approach for broadening the…

Characterizing the work of coaching during design reviews

In this exploratory study we characterize the work of coaching using a pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) framework to make visible coaches' integrated knowledge of the how, what, and why of coaching during design reviews. We observed four patterns of coaching across three design review contexts: choreography, undergraduate industrial design, and mechanical engineering. These include scaffolding articulation, driving for meaning and guidance, breaking the 4th wall to create a teaching moment, and ‘suggest don't tell’ to let the student figure it out. We conclude with identifying new ways to conceptualize the work of coaching in design reviews as integrated knowing, situated practice, and shared repertoires.
