The application deadline is August 1, 2016.

Together, we will tackle difficult questions like: 

  • What theories, critical questions and methodologies can promote intersectional research in engineering education? 
  • How do current methodological decisions reproduce marginalization of underrepresented and underserved students? 
  • How does the nature of funding agencies influence what is done in engineering education research?
