CEC student Scottie-Beth Fleming and alumnae Dr. Alexandra Coso attended the 121st Annual American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) Conference & Exposition from June 15-18 in Indianapolis. Both presented papers and participated in workshops during the conference.
Alexandra's conference paper was coauthored by Dr. Amy Pritchett and was titled "The Development of a Rubric to Evaluate and Promote Students' Integration of Stakeholder Considerations into the Engineering Design Process." Scottie-Beth's conference paper was titled "Collaboration within Engineering Education Research's Community of Practice."
Additionally, prior to and at the conference, Alexandra and Scottie-Beth participated in the Engineering Education Pioneers and Trajectories of Impact research project (PI's Cynthia Atman, Jennifer Turns, Ken Yasuhara). This research project asked participating graduate students to interview an engineering education research "Pioneer" and inquire about the Pioneer's career trajectory and notable influencing experiences. At the conference, Scottie-Beth and Alexandra attended a workshop where they collectively analyzed findings among the other graduate student participants. They also had the opportunity to meet the Pioneers during a networking event. Dr. Cindy Atman discussed the overarching themes of the project through a Distinguished Lecture on the last day of the conference.
Immediately following the conference, Alexandra participated in the PEER Collaborative National Workshop hosted at Purdue University. Workshop attendance focused on early career faculty and staff whose research is primarily in the field of engineering education . The goals of the workshop included supporting the development of a strong support network among peer engineering education researchers.
