Propagation is a goal that most developers of educational innovations strive for. However, it is also a goal that eludes many, in part because development teams fail to consider and plan for many factors that affect propagation. Developers of educational innovations should find this workshop especially pertinent for their work. The purpose of the workshop is to help participants design a propagation plan that addresses, in part, the broader impact criterion for NSF proposals and works in concert with their development and evaluation plans. Results of our work to date suggest that coordination among ... (continued)

Two NSF grant projects have studied how real-world examples and content can be structured as textbook and classroom supplements through the “scenario” concept. A scenario is similar to a case study but includes additional background and narrative information, skills-based as well as open-ended problems, and copious reference information. Scenarios can be used in different ways and with different teaching techniques to address elements of purpose, autonomy, and relatedness in motivation, as well as elements of self-efficacy. This workshop will review current research into student motivation, self-e ... (continued)

Many future engineering challenges will span two or more of the traditional engineering disciplines. For example, 3D printing clearly involves electrical and mechanical engineering (not to mention materials science/chemical engineering and computer science). As another example, the creation, deployment, and maintenance of autonomous vehicles similarly involve multiple disciplines. A common denominator to many of these challenges is the use of electronics and electri ... (continued)

Although the advent of Next Generation Science Standards has led to a strong push for effective K-12 STEM education across K-12, there is still great confusion among K-12 educators as to how to effectively represent the “E” in “STEM.” In fact, relatively few K-12 teachers are focusing on the engineering practices and habits of mind that engineers know are central to the profession – largely because few of them are equipped to do so. If ASEE would like these teachers, who are on the front lines teaching K-12 students, to understand what engineering is and how to most effectively teach it, then those ... (continued)
