Implicit theories of intelligence in STEM education: perspectives through the lens of technology education students.
The educational significance of eliciting students’ implicit theories of intelligence is well established with the majority of this work focussing on theories regarding entity and incremental beliefs. However, a second ...
Investigating perceptions of intelligence as an approach to understanding female representation in technology and engineering education.
Gender representation in technology and engineering education is generally not equitable with females being underrepresented in many areas (e.g. Sultan, Axell, & Hallström, 2018; Yoder, 2017). While there are many perspectives ...
The predictive capacity of spatial ability for knowledge retention in third level technology and engineering education.
(Technology Education Research Group, 2019-06)
It is well established that spatial ability correlates with STEM performance. THis has been shown through substantial longitudinal evidence e.g. (Wai, Lubinski, & Benbow, 2009). Specifically, it has been demonstrated as ...
Engineering education research methods to determine conceptions of engineers and of engineering.
Engineering education research has been categorised into the five research areas of ‘engineering epistemologies’, ‘engineering learning mechanisms’, ‘engineering learning systems’, engineering diversity and inclusiveness’, ...
A comparison of Swedish and Irish secondary students' conceptions of engineers and engineering using the draw-an-engineer test
Women are significantly underrepresented in engineering and engineering related disciplines. One area where this is clearly illustrated is in the percentage of females enrolled in higher education engineering courses. The ...
