Toward A Theory Of Engineering Professorial Intentions: The Role Of Research Group Experiences, Brian A. Burt Aug 2018

Toward A Theory Of Engineering Professorial Intentions: The Role Of Research Group Experiences, Brian A. Burt

Education Publications

This article advances the Theoretical Model of Engineering Professorial Intentions to explain why individuals do or do not choose to pursue faculty careers. A 13-month ethnographic study of members of a diverse chemical engineering research group was conducted. The resulting theoretical model accounts for six emergent components that contribute to members’ identification with faculty careers: (1) social identities and personal factors; (2) sociocultural factors; (3) participation, interactions, and learning in research group experiences; (4) faculty prototype; (5) social comparisons; and (6) individual and institutional experiences. The article concludes with implications for further research and recommendations regarding mentoring and design of ...

Engaging Latino Men In Community Colleges: The Role Of Student-Faculty Interactions, Sarah L. Rodriguez, Kristine Massey, Victor B. Saenz

Education Publications

Community college faculty members are essential to promoting student engagement and success, yet little research in this area has focused on the interactions of Latino men with their faculty members. The study utilized Harris and Wood’s (2013) Socio-Ecological Outcomes (SEO) model which focuses on the educational success of men of color in community colleges, to examine how Latino men made meaning of their interactions with faculty members and how these interactions influenced their community college success. Latino men made meaning of their faculty experiences based on (a) the accessibility and approachability of the faculty member, (b) their own hesitancy ...


Aim’S Research Experiences For Undergraduate Faculty Program, Leslie Hogben, Ulrica Wilson Jan 2014

Aim’S Research Experiences For Undergraduate Faculty Program, Leslie Hogben, Ulrica Wilson

Mathematics Publications

The Research Experiences for Undergraduate Faculty (REUF) program of the American Institute of Mathematics prepares faculty to engage in research with undergraduate students, encourages long-term research collaborations among some of its faculty, and builds a network of faculty who supervise undergraduate research. Participants of each REUF workshop are faculty members from undergraduate colleges interested in mentoring students in research mathematics at their home institutions. During a workshop, senior mathematicians with experience supervising undergraduate research present open problems suitable for undergraduates. The REUF program also includes several follow-up activities.
