  1. COMMUNITY UPDATEJWMHiatus Announcement (June-September 2024)

The Journal of Women and Minorities in Science and Engineering (JWM) is announcing a three-month hiatus on new submissions, beginning May 31st and ending September 1st, 2024.

Why is this occurring? As a paper journal, we are limited in how many articles we can publish per issue due to page constraints. Currently, we have a backlog of accepted articles waiting to be published and we don’t want authors to have to wait 18 months from time of acceptance to publication. To improve timeliness in delivering our content to the JWM audience, we need to allow some time for the publishing schedule to catch up to existing submissions.

Although no new submissions will be accepted for review during the hiatus timeframe, we encourage authors who are nearly ready to submit their manuscripts to JWM to go ahead and do so before May 31st, 2024 ( We will be welcoming new submissions again in September 2024, with our newly reduced word limit (8,000 words). This new word limit will help us overcome our constraints as a paper journal while continuing to serve our JWM authors and STEM education research community.

  1. CALL FOR APPLICATIONS:[EXTENDED] Studies in Engineering Education Looking for a New Co-Editor


Studies in Engineering Education invites applications for a new Co-Editor. SEE is an international, open-access, peer reviewed journal that provides a venue for high-quality research conducted in all settings and contexts relevant to engineering education, with an emphasis on contextually rich reflective discussions of issues and approaches important to engineering education researchers and practitioners. More information about the journal can be found on the website:

The Co-Editor of SEE will work with a team consisting of Co-Editor Dr. Marie Paretti, Associate Editors, and an Editorial Assistant to establish and execute processes to maintain SEE’s status as an international research journal in engineering education focused on qualitative and interpretive research paradigms. Among these processes and activities are: establishing and maintaining the editorial standards for the journal, managing the review and publication of papers, facilitating editorial board meetings, engaging the SEE advisory board, and training new associate editors. Executing these responsibilities requires approximately a 4-hour time commitment per week. Applicants should be recognized scholars in the field of engineering education at the national or international level.

If you’re interested in serving as Co-Editor, please send an email containing (a) a cover letter including a summary of relevant experiences, (b) a vision statement for the future of SEE and a statement of your editorial philosophy, and (c) a full Curriculum Vitae, all to Shane Brown at All materials should be sent as pdf attachments not later than Friday, April 26th, 2024 by midnight EDT.

  1. CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: NETI-1, Course Design and Student Engagement


NETI-1, Course Design and Student Engagement, the flagship offering of the National Effective Teaching Institute, will be offered July 30 – August 1, 2024, at Purdue University. Drs. Susan Lord, Matt Ohland, and Michael Prince will lead the long-standing foundational NETI-1 workshop, which has been offered since 1991. Previous NETI programs have reached over 3000 participants from more than 370 different schools. Our past participant evaluations have been overwhelmingly positive. The workshop features material for relatively new faculty members and other material designed to equip experienced faculty members to become teaching leaders and mentors on their campuses. Participants will include up to 60 faculty members from all branches of engineering, engineering technology, and other STEM areas. The registration fee is $1275 per participant, which covers organization and presentation costs, participant notebooks, lunches, and breaks. Participants also receive a copy of Felder & Brent’s Teaching and Learning STEM: A Practical Guide and the option of touring Purdue’s School of Engineering Education. NETI workshops have a powerful impact when teams of instructors from the same institution attend as a group, so for every three registrants from the same institution, the fourth is FREE! Travel expenses, including breakfasts and dinners, are not included. Further details about the workshop program and a link to register can be found at or email for more information.

  1. CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Seeking Support with Dissertation Study: Recruiting Engineering Faculty


I am seeking support with my dissertation research focused on investigating critical consciousness development in engineering faculty. The purpose of the research is to examine the critical consciousness development of engineering faculty throughout their career to explore how their positionality and lived experiences have shaped their critical awareness. If you are interested in participating in my project, you will first start with a recruitment questionnaire which should take no more than 7 minutes. Once selected as a participant, you will participate in two interviews and be provided with supplemental materials on critical consciousness that you can review independently. Participation is voluntary, but I hope you will choose to be part of this project! For additional information or concerns, please contact me (Jameka Wiggins) at

Questionnaire Link:

Eligibility Criteria

– Required

— A tenure track, tenure, and/or non-tenure engineering faculty member. Faculty in the context of my study is defined by the National Center for Education as “professors, associate professors, assistant professors, instructors, lecturers, assisting professors, adjunct professors, and interim professors” (NCES, 2022). Non-tenure track faculty would be those that identify as instructors, lecturers, clinical, and/or practitioners. Tenure-track faculty are those who identify as assistant, associate, or full professors.

– Not Required but appreciated

— A desire to improve students’ experiences, especially those who are marginalized.

— Have an interest in reforming policies and teaching practices, and a strong interest in learning about culturally sustainable pedagogy.

— Interested in diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice (DEIJ) research.


As a participant, you will be compensated $100 broken up into installments. Each payment will be distributed after the completion of the study component excluding the questionnaire. By the end of the study, the goal is for participants to be equipped with valuable insights into critical consciousness and strategies in reflexive praxis that can enrich their pedagogical practices with inclusivity in mind. In addition, you will be provided a Critical Consciousness Resource Guide to utilize for your professional development after the completion of the study.


  1. CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Summer Teaching Workshop at Bucknell University
