The UNO STEM TRAIL Center invites you to attend their DBER Workshop Series "What are "Theoretical Frameworks?" This workshop will take place Friday, Nov. 8 from noon - 1 P.M. in the Thompson Alumni Center.
The discipline-based education research (DBER) workshop series will focus on methodology for conducting and publishing DBER. The workshops will model methods discussed in the seminar series so that participants can review methods and then see them modeled in a published study. Participants will gain skills in designing and conducting DBER studies for student engagement, learning, and retention.
This week, we will discuss theoretical frameworks and how we can use them as models. We will also discuss methods for evaluating frameworks based on observations. The discussion will be framed within the context of Dr. Allison Godwin's paper "Identity, Critical Agency, and Engineering: An Affective Model for Predicting Engineering as a Career Choice" from the Journal of Engineering Education. Please read the paper before coming to the workshop.
