ASEE 2020 Conference
Undergraduate researchers Laine Rumreich, Ada Barach, Zachary Dix, Nick Sattele, Sery Gunawardena, Connor Jenkins, and Faith Logan participated in the 2020 American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) Annual Conference.
Event Background: The 2020 ASEE Annual conference was held vitually June 22-26. This annual conference includes many technical sessions presenting a wide range of topics related to engineering education.
FYRE Participation: The KEEN group, including Laine, Faith, Nick, and Zach, presented a paper on comparing EM course learning objectives from various KEEN schools. This paper showed a need for a more consistent set of measurable learning objectives, and it has guided our ongoing KEEN projects.
The MCS1 team: Ada, Connor, and Sery, presented their paper on the replication of a programming concept inventory and its modification to be MATLAB-specific. They are continuing this project in a journal paper on their validation process for the exam.
Future Plans: The FYRE research group is continuing to work on the projects presented at this conference. Although the conference was virtual many of us were still able to present our research and get feedback for the Q&A sessions that will help our future research.
