Work in Progress Papers

  • The Work-in-Progress submission type is for work that is still in the process of study and/or implementation. That is the work is not complete, thus, results may not be available.
  • The author must submit: author’s name, paper title, author’s affiliation, phone number, fax number, and e-mail address.
  • Each abstract should be between 300 and 500 words in length, Times New Roman 24 pt. font for title, Times New Roman 12 pt. font for body. Use single column format for abstract with 1 inch margins.
  • One author from each paper is expected to register for and attend the conference. The registered author can present more than one paper.
  • Final papers will be limited to three pages, not including references or Author Bios.
  • See the FYEE Author’s Kit for font and spacing requirements.
  • Work-in-Progress papers will be peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers. The purpose of the review will be to provide the author with feedback to consider in their on going research.
  • The paper submission site is through ASEE’s monolith system
  • Abstract submission deadline March 4, 2018
  • Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection of their proposed paper by March 5, 2018.
  • If your submission is accepted, papers are due for peer review by April 16, 2018.
  • Authors will be notified of peer review results by May 18, 2018.
  • Modified papers will be due by June 22, 2018.

Note, some work-in-progress papers may be selected to participate in a new format of presentation that will include a round table discussion. This is to aid in getting feedback about your work and engage the first year engineering education community. You will be notified of this format after the peer review stage is complete.

All authors on a paper will be expected to participate in the review process.

Basic Paper Descriptions

How something works in Practice or could work in Practice

To help authors prepare their final submissions, the conference suggests the following guidelines for preparing a Full paper.

  • What is the breadth of the audience that will be interested in the subject of the paper?
  • To what extent are the practices described in the paper innovative, leading-edge, cutting-edge?
  • Has the research already been done or proposed?
  • To what degree have questions about purpose, potential hypotheses, and possible methodologies been addressed?
  • Paper should be professionally written and presented.
Purpose of the paper
Papers should share information about how a faculty member or team are developing and/or implementing, novel practices across the breadth of topics of interest to conference participants. The work does not have to be completed but should be at a phase where meaningful information can be presented.
Papers should share information about how a faculty member or team are developing and/or implementing, novel practices across the breadth of topics of interest to conference participants. The work does not have to be completed but should be at a phase where meaningful information can be presented.
Papers could share information about how a faculty member or group of faculty members are developing and/or implementing new practices explicitly based on research on engineering education and/or education. The paper should demonstrate transfer from research to practice. The work does not have to be completed but should be at a phase where meaningful information can be presented.
Content – Suggestions not Requirements
Papers may be made in various forms, but they should answer such questions as: What situation is being addressed? What are the goals of the practice being implemented? What research provides the foundations for the inventive practice? It should have something that very few people or no one else has attempted. In addition, the study need not be completed by the time the paper is submitted.
It is suggested that the final paper should describe the setting for the practice, motivations for the practice, what has been accomplished, what remains to be done, or some similar content. It is assumed that the practices described in the paper or an implementation of the research has not been widely tested.
It is suggested that the final paper should describe some similar research that has supported the practice, or how does the research incorporate any relevant research. A brief synopsis of the methodology, and/or describe the research question(s) should be included.
Finally, it is suggested that the final paper should describe what results the authors anticipate will be obtained, and what remains to be done before the study will be completed, or some similar content.
