Unit and Group Affiliations


Morgan conducts engineering education research in both pre-college and college settings. Morgan’s main research interest relates to broadening participation in engineering, which he is pursuing through his NSF CAREER award (2015). His research investigates how presenting engineering in broad, humanistic contexts can appeal to a more diverse population of students. He also investigates how these broad contexts support students’ engagement in authentic engineering design practices. Additionally, Morgan explores how Makerspaces or Fabrication lab spaces can help facilitate engineering teaching and learning.
