Engineering Education Research

The IUCEE Engineering Education Research course is aimed at introducing faculty to essential elements of conducting research in engineering education, with a focus on the scholarship of teaching and learning. The course is expected to have 6 live webinars and at least 3 assignments supported by online discussions on Canvas. At the end of the course, participants will be able to frame appropriate research questions, select and justify the selection of experimental methods that are appropriate for the research questions and apply appropriate analyses (qualitative or quantitative). A poll will be conducted in the first webinar to select 2 out of 4 other potential topics.
