deiSeminarHeader.jpgYou are cordially invited to attend the School of Engineering’s First Engineering Education Workshop Series. This is the second of six workshops framed on diversity, equity, and inclusion in engineering education. The overarching goal of this project is to provide a mechanism for enhancing the climate, culture, and training of educators in STEM fields via a series of targeted seminars framed on providing inclusive and accessible engineering education pedagogy and practices through a collaboration between the School of Engineering and Graduate School of Education.

Topic:

Am I an Engineer? Identity, Belonging, and Motivation in Engineering Education

 

Location, Date & Time:

Zoom Meeting - April 14, 2022, 4:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

 

Open to Faculty, Staff, Students and the Public

 

About the Speaker:

Allison Godwin, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor of Engineering Education and of Chemical Engineering at Purdue University. She is also the Engineering Workforce Development Director for CISTAR, the Center for Innovative and Strategic Transformation of Alkane Resources, a National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center. Her research focuses on how identity, among other affective factors, influences diverse students to choose engineering and persist in engineering. She also studies how different experiences within the practice and culture of engineering foster or hinder belongingness and identity development. Dr. Godwin graduated from Clemson University with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering and Ph.D. in Engineering and Science Education. Dr. Godwin currently serves as the Chair of the American Society for Engineering Education Educational Research (ASEE ERM) and Methods Division and an Assistant Editor for Chemical Engineering Education. She has won several awards for her research including an NSF CAREER Award, a 2019 Clemson University College of Engineering, Computing, and Applied Sciences Outstanding Young Alumni Award, 2017 the IEEE Frontiers in Education Benjamin J. Dasher Award, and the 2020 ASEE ERM Best Diversity Paper Award. In the classroom, Dr. Godwin has also been honored with awards for teaching including being invited as a participant in to the 2016 National Academy of Engineering Frontiers of Engineering Education Symposium and being awarded the 2018 Purdue University College of Engineering Exceptional Early Career Teaching Award.
