AJEE Special Issue Call for Papers

Australasian Journal of Engineering Education

Special Issue:  Assessment, Benchmarking, Impact, and Evaluation.
Deadline: 31 January, 2018

With this open call for papers we welcome all submissions addressing one or more of the topics listed below but particularly encourage authors of papers presented at the 2017 Research in Engineering Education Symposium (REES2017), in Bogotá, Colombia. REES2017 paper authors are invited to submit extended and elaborated versions of their paper for the Special Issue after benefiting from feedback at the conference.

Submissions are sought for original research articles addressing transitions in contexts such as:

  • assessment of secondary school to tertiary education transition
  • first-year student success and retention
  • embedded engineering practice in engineering education
  • engineering alumni/practitioners
  • workplace problem solving simulations,
  • real world collaborations (e.g., service learning and capstone projects),
  • engineering identity and socialisation.
