11. CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Survey to bridge the researcher-practitioner divide

Existing studies suggest that researchers and practitioners view the role of research in education differently; and this difference partly explains the disconnect between research and practice. Though reasonable argued, this idea has not been empirically investigated. In an effort to take steps toward bridging this gap between research and practice in engineering education, a survey was developed to test this idea (http://tinyurl.com/y3xkqjjz). Complete this brief survey today and enter for a chance to win a $25 gift card. Feel free to contact Drs. Jeremi London (jslondon@vt.edu) or Bev Watford (deuce@vt.edu) if you have questions.

With variation in emphasis, important questions arise: How might the alternatives of formative or summative perspectives on design education be in real conflict or supportive of larger learning goals? What is the role of process in the context of engineering design education? And how does a process-led pedagogy differ from actual practice? Mission: To identify, articulate, and address the importance of process in engineering design and design education and to improve the methods by which process is taught, learned, and applied in the context of engineering design process activities. Possible topics are listed in the call for papers at https://mudddesignworkshop.com/callforpapers-mdwix/.

Experience: Podium sessions are initiated by brief position paper summaries from panelists followed by extended open discussion. Poster sessions will include multiple perspectives and will be included in the wrap-up session. The wrap-up session will collect the most important outputs for improving engineering design education for dissemination to the community. Participants will receive a preliminary proceedings containing near-final manuscripts of presented papers. Those drafts will subsequently be refined and reviewed for publication in a Special Issue of the International Journal of Engineering Education to comprise the archival proceedings of the Clive L. Dym Mudd Design Workshop XI.

Abstracts should be submitted electronically to: https://hmc.formstack.com/forms/clive_l_dym_mudd_design_workshop_xi_abstracts and may be emailed to: Sydney_Torrey@hmc.edu and Gordon_Krauss@hmc.edu
