Assistant Professor of Engineering Education
Morgan received both his 2001 B.S. in mechanical engineering and his 2009 Ph.D. in engineering education at Tufts University, Massachusetts.
Morgan conducts engineering education research in both K-12 and college settings. Morgan’s main research interest is in how students and teachers engage in and reflect upon the engineering design process. His research includes investigating how teachers conceptualize and teach engineering through in-depth case study analysis. In the K-12 classroom, he is interested in how settings (i.e., physical classroom setup) and contexts (i.e., integrating more of the social sciences and humanities) influence students’ engagement in and understanding of engineering and design.
