David Radcliffe
Kamyar Haghighi Head of Engineering Education
Epistemology Professor of Engineering Education
Research: The nature of engineering as a profession; how it perceived and practiced, how it is learned especially outside the classroom, and how an engineering identity is shaped. The design of creative learning places and of ways to foster distributed communities of research practice in engineering education.
Robin Adams
Associate Professor
Research: Investigation of engineering practice: (1) cross-disciplinary ways of thinking, acting, and being; (2) design knowing and learning; and (3) the everyday nature of engineering thinking (at home, in school, at work). Creating "systems" bridges between education research and the practice of engineering education: (1) cross-disciplinary communities; (2) research-based instructional resources; and (3) translating research methods into pedagogical methods
Edward Berger
Associate Professor, Engineering Education
Research: teaching with technology, assessment of technology interventions, non-cognitive factors and their role in student success, discipline-based engineering education research

Sean Brophy
Associate Professor
Research: Development of effective learning environments that develop adaptive expertise. This research focuses on the mechanisms and knowledge to comprehend, analyze, troubleshoot and design complex systems, exploring how these mechanisms mature and how we can foster developing these abilities through learning activities that use simulations, analogical reasoning, and model construction/evaluation.

Professor
Research: Student pathways, success, and institutional policy (using longitudinal data from 1,000,000+ students). Team-member effectiveness, learning, and social relations investigated using peer evaluations of over 60,000 students. Effect of team formation strategies on individuals and teams.
Alice Pawley
Associate Professor
Research: Use of qualitative methods to investigate engineering epistemology, engineering identity, and boundary work to understand better how to make engineering an inclusive discipline. Crossing the boundaries of engineering education, science and technology studies, and women's studies, this research focuses on how, what, and why we (engineers and engineering educators) understand engineering to be.
