Assessing design activity in engineering education: a proposed synthesis of adaptive comparative judgement and the CDIO Framework.
One of the leading frameworks in engineering education specifically associated with design based competencies is the CDIO framework. This has been incorporated internationally into many institutions offering engineering ...
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 ...
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 ...
Investigating the relationships between spatial ability, interest, and task experience on knowledge retention in engineering education.
Spatial ability has been established as having a significant effect on performance and subsequently on retention in engineering education. However, the cause for this phenomenon is not yet fully understood. Based on ...
Developing a spatial ability framework to support spatial ability research in engineering education.
The association between high levels of spatial cognition and success in a number of engineering and technological fields is widely acknowledged within the pertinent literature. There is a now a need for further investigation ...
MIND strengths: the unique cognitive architecture of engineering and technology students.
Engineering and technology education is uniquely positioned within formal education systems to facilitate the development of a broad range of cognitive competencies such as designerly thinking, spatial reasoning and ...
