Abstract

Currently there is a lot of emphasis on engineering education research (EER) and engineering education innovation (EEI). In the EER domain, several universities have established or are considering establishing engineering education research centers and PhD programs. In the EEI domain, the National Academy of Engineering launched the Frontiers of Engineering Education (FOEE) symposium and NSF recast CCLI as TUES. The growth of interest in the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) has great potential to contribute to EER and EEI. A recent NSF Webinar series is featuring SoTL. The aim of this special session is to provide an opportunity for representatives of these three communities to network with one another, to welcome representatives from emerging programs, and to provide guidance to colleagues who are considering establishing initiatives in these areas. We will set up a space on the Collaboratory for Engineering Education Research (CLEERhub.org) where we will post the program descriptions (and links). We will encourage participants to use CLEERhub.org as a means for following up after the session.
