New School of Engineering Education - Can We Get Them Connected to Arts Integration?

I am Johannes Strobel, an Assistant Professor in Engineering Education & Educational Technology @ Purdue University. I am also the Director of INSPIRE, Institute for P-12 Engineering Research and Learning. I am primarily involved in the INNOVATIONS IN P–12 sTEm EDUCATION. This initiative aims to “develop research-based, pedagogically valid strategies for effective interventions that begin in the early elementary environment and guide P-20 engineering and technology pathways”.

Engineering Education is a new field and we at Purdue have the world’s first Engineering Education department (now even School). We are in charge of the first-year experience of all engineering undergraduates, coordinate the multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary engineering bachelor, and offer a Ph.D. in Engineering Education.
