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 ...
Spatial cognition in engineering education: developing a spatial ability framework to support the translation of theory into practice.
(Taylor & Francis Online, 2019)
A substantial degree of empirical evidence has illustrated the correlation between spatial skills and performance in engineering education. This evidence has been foundational in the construction of educational interventions ...
