XRoadsResearch at XRoads

Abstract | The XRoads research lab is directed by Dr. Robin Adams, Associate Professor in the School of Engineering Education.  In XRoads we encourage conceptual collisions across different perspectives to catalyze action in three research areas:  1) design thinking and learning, 2) cross-disciplinary ways of thinking, acting, and being, and 3) engineering education transformation. We use a wide variety of quantitative and qualitative research methods including collaborative inquiry, design-based research, and phenomenography to investigate socio-technical phenomenon around design, transformative learning, and becoming a professional in academia and industry.  XRoads is an engaging learning community and our Alumni can be found in academic careers in engineering education research and teaching and learning.

brainSTEM: Brain Research Applications in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math

Abstract | The invention of the telescope in the early 1600’s ushered in the birth of the science of astronomy.  Suddenly, we could see the planets and stars with greater clarity.  And when we could see more clearly, existing theories about how the universe worked (proposed by Aristotle and others) no longer held up. Dr. Streveler proposes that the science of learning is now in a similar position. New tools are allowing us to view the intricacies of learning in unprecedented detail.  Do current learning theories still seem valid in light of these new findings? How might neuroscience research might change how we think about and investigate learning?

Investigating Engineering Education & Technology Tools to Realize Opportunities for Diverse Students Around the World

Abstract | Investigating engineering education & technology tools to realize opportunities for diverse students around the world. The DeBoer Lab is motivated to understand how we can promote equity and success for diverse engineering students around the world. Specifically, we are interested in: International & comparative engineering education policy; social context and student background factors of education; and technology use in providing learning opportunities for diverse students.

Careers and Alumni Profiles

Our number one question after learning more about the program is "what can I do with my PhD when I am done?" Hear from a selection of our alumni and what they are up to now!
