Structured Pairing in an Electronics Laboratory

Plus: A Model of Research Mentoring, with Dr. Michael Loui

Friday, May 25, 2018 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Dr. Michael Loui, professor of engineering education from Purdue University, will present two unrelated projects.

First, in an electronics laboratory for first-year engineering students, Loui and his group conducted a quasi-experimental, mixed-methods study of an adaptation of pair programming, called structured pairing. To compare lab sections that used structured pairing with lab sections that used traditional groups, they administered a survey and conducted focus group interviews to obtain data on student confidence, satisfaction, and retention. (Joint work with Nicholas Fila.)

Second, in a grounded theory study, Loui's group analyzed the reflective journals and mentoring philosophy statements of eighteen graduate student mentors of undergraduate researchers in a summer research program. They developed a model of research mentoring that describes how the mentoring relationship can evolve and explains how mismatched expectations can arise. (Joint work with Renata Revelo.)

A lightly catered lunch will be provided. Kindly RSVP: http://oregonstate.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9FwkVLlXDVGp0Md
