ERM Announcements, October 17, 2022

Hello everyone*,

I trust you and your loved ones are well wherever you currently are. I was pleased to see some of you at FIE in Sweden last week. It’s quite a sunny but windy day here in southwest Virginia. I hope the weather is lovely too in your area.

There are lots of announcements below. Please share broadly with anyone you think could benefit from these postings.

You may have noticed the announcements came from different people the last few months, Cass McCall in August, Matilde Sanchez-Pena in September and from me of course for October. Thank you for bearing with us as we filled in for Allison. She will be back full time later this month and will resume sending the bi-monthly announcements.

If you have any announcements you would like to be included next month please see the instructions at the end of the announcements.



*apologies if you get this multiple times

We are excited to invite all interested students to attend an open house to learn about the UM’s graduate program in Engineering Education Research (EER). UM’s EER program represents a unique, interdisciplinary model: EER Ph.D. students (who enjoy a full funding package) are part of a college-wide program, while several tenure-line EER faculty are embedded within the traditional engineering departments. The integrated nature of the program allows the EER faculty and their research groups to be well-integrated with the traditional engineering disciplines, and it provides students a better opportunity to engage in innovative research and make scholarly contributions to the engineering education community. More information about the program is available at our EER website ( We will be hosting a Hybrid Open House on Thursday and Friday, 11/03/22 and 11/04/22. Students from all institutions are invited to attend, whether in-person or by Zoom (a zoom link will be emailed prior to the program). Participants will hear about the EER graduate program, meet faculty and graduate students, tour the beautiful University of Michigan campus, and learn about career opportunities as an UM graduate in this field. For participants who travel within the U.S., a limited number of travel grants are available to offset the costs of traveling to Ann Arbor, so please register soon. Note that we highly encourage applicants to the EER graduate program to have Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in a traditional engineering discipline. Please register to attend at this open house registration site ( and please forward this link to any friends who may be interested. Email us for more information at

  1. CALL FOR PARTICIPATION:University of Cincinnati’s Department of Engineering & Computing Education Graduate Program Open House

Join us for a Virtual Open House to learn more about the Engineering Education Graduate Programs (M.S. and Ph.D.) at the University of Cincinnati. During this virtual introduction to our programs, we will also be discussing our face-to-face Open House to be held March 2023.

Virtual Open House Date: October 24, 2021 – 6-8 PM EST

Register here

The Department of Engineering & Computing Education in the University of Cincinnati’s College of Engineering and Applied Science is accepting applications for M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Engineering Education to further the research and study of how to best educate engineering students at all levels. Graduate students will gain expertise in theories related to the teaching and learning of engineering, research methodologies, and advancement in their chosen technical engineering discipline. Specializations include higher education research, pre-K-12 engineering education research, or industry and workforce development research.

  1. CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS: Survey on Digitalization of the Engineering Curriculum

The increasingly digital world is increasingly being reflected in the way in which we practice and teach engineering.  Emergency remote instruction during the COVID pandemic has shown that indeed most of an engineering degree can be taught online; however, the majority of efforts in this space were digital versions of face-to-face teaching.  As we emerge from the pandemic it is timely to consider which parts of the curriculum matter most for student learning, and whether they should return to face to face delivery, or move towards digital native forms of learning.

The UNESCO Centre for PBL at Aalborg University is running a survey to evaluate faculty perceptions of how important a range of activities are for student learning, as well as how suitable those experiences are for digitalization. The items on this survey are not structured by the traditional timetabled experiences for student engineers (e.g. lectures / tutorials / laboratories); instead these experiences have been unpacked into the affordances that they provide.

The survey is available online at

Any questions regarding the survey can be directed to Euan Lindsay, Professor of PBL and Digitalisation in Engineering Education:

Published four times a year and currently in its 111th volume, the Journal publishes empirical investigations, research reviews, and guest editorials in a wide variety of engineering education topics, including engineering epistemologies, learning mechanisms, diversity and inclusiveness, assessment methods, and more. These findings contribute significantly to the body of knowledge in engineering education and have led to substantial improvements in the field.
