Specializations include higher education, pre-K-12 engineering education, or industry and workforce development.
6. EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT: Purdue University Engineer Education Open House
Purdue’s School of Engineering Education is home to a vibrant community of scholars who are passionate about studying how engineering is best taught, learned, and practiced. A graduate degree in engineering education has opened doors for our alumni to a range of career opportunities, from academia to non-profit work to industry. In addition to our flagship on-campus Ph.D., we have hybrid/remote Ph.D., online M.S., and graduation certificate offerings.
You are invited to attend our two-day graduate program Open House on Thursday, October 21 (all day) and Friday, October 22, 2021 (morning). You will have opportunities to learn about our groundbreaking graduate programs, meet our faculty and students, attend our weekly research seminar, and learn about our research facilities. This event brings together individuals from a variety of backgrounds: current undergraduate and masters students from many disciplines, practicing STEM educators, and professional engineers ready for a career pivot, to name a few.
We will have an online/distance event this year, and possibly a face-to-face option depending on demand and local conditions. Note that a limited number of travel grants are available for attendees, handled on a case-by-case basis if an on-campus event is held. For more information about the open house, see:
If you cannot attend the open house but are interested in receiving invitations to virtual events, or you have any other questions, please contact: email@example.com
7. CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: NSF Research Initiation in Engineering Formation
The NSF Engineering (ENG) Directorate is continuing a multi-year initiative, the Professional Formation of Engineers, to create and support an innovative and inclusive engineering profession for the 21st Century. The PFE: Research Initiation in Engineering Formation (PFE: RIEF) program has two goals: 1) Support research in the Professional Formation of Engineers (PFE), and 2) Increase the community of researchers conducting PFE research. PIs are expected to have little or no experience conducting social science or education research and will develop the proposal with an engineering education research mentor. The full proposal deadline date is November 9, 2021 ( Second Tuesday in November, Annually Thereafter).

3. POSITION ANNOUNCEMENT: Postdoctoral Scholar on the Leonhard Center at Penn State
The Leonhard Center for the Enhancement of Engineering Education within the College of Engineering, is excited to announce our search for a postdoctoral scholar. The Leonhard Center is an endowed Center that forms partnerships with engineering faculty and programs in designing, implementing, and evaluating research-based innovations in undergraduate and graduate engineering education. In addition, the Leonhard Center initiates and evaluates College-wide projects in support of the College’s strategic goals. The Leonhard Center also provides workshops and summer academies for faculty on a wide range of topics from creativity and innovation to engineering communication. The Leonhard Center prides itself on its creative and positive workplace culture and welcomes individuals from diverse backgrounds.
Under the mentorship of the Center’s Director of Assessment and Instructional Support, the postdoctoral scholar will lead several projects. The primary project is a research study, funded by the KEEN foundation, investigating the relationship between engineering faculty beliefs and instructional practices. The project will generate new understanding on how faculty beliefs (such as growth or fixed mindset) across different domains may impact instructional decision making, including the adoption of evidence-based instructional practices. Additional projects may include collaborating with faculty to design and evaluate projects in engineering education and offering college-wide workshops on innovative instructional practices and educational research. Working in the Leonhard Center will provide candidates with varied experience in both engineering educational research as well as faculty development. The position requires the ability to design and conduct research using qualitative and quantitative methods. The successful candidate will have demonstrated excellence in communication and collaboration. The ability to publish and present the results of the studies at national or international conferences is also important for the position.
